First Day of School....

for the public schools... Man, I miss NYC. School began at a reasonable time of year, after Labor Day.

The children are excited about their new pens and pencils and paint and markers and crayons and notebooks and and and {laughing}!!

The funny thing to me is, we didn't stop learning all summer long, so it is more of the same for the rest of the year. For now, the most exciting thing is the fall garden. When we lived in NYC, the gardening season ends with the fall. Here is SC, it is warm enough to have a garden most of the year. This being our first year gardening, we are learning many valuable lessons...

The excitement of planting seeds and watching them grow,

The patience necessary to wait for the harvest to mature so that it can be gathered when it is ripe,

And, most importantly, the absolute necessity of diligence in weeding, otherwise, instead of having weeds in your garden, you have a garden in your weeds, lol!!

I for one, am looking forward to days that are simply warm; where you can enjoy the temperature and breezes blowing across your skin. I prefer warm weather to cold, but the late spring and fall weather down here is about as close to paradise as you can get :-). Many perfect temperature days stretch out ahead, where I can sit on the back deck with the children and enjoy the sunsets (HEY!! Children!! Where's that camera?!?)
