So, it's September

Huh. Who knew. September already. Summer is over ~ it's time to start school.

I am so not ready. Spending most of the summer getting ready to move, then moving, then trying to get moved in; well, it takes it out of ya. And, like my little Kiwi observed, after all that it didn't really seem like a summer vacation. She got that right!

But, life doesn't care how you feel about it. It just moves on like a river, whether fast or slow, and you have to go with it. Fighting the current only makes you tired.

So, we'll have a little Sunday, and a Labor Day, then start our little homeschool venture on Tuesday. Of course, with the car breaking down and other nice little surprises, we haven't had the money to purchase one single textbook. But, we have a library, we have the internet, we have wonderful points of historic interest to visit, we have good brains and we know how to use them. Life, and school, will carry on. And it will all be fine.

If all else fails, we have the cat for entertainment.

  1. I know- my kids had to return to school 2 weeks before Labor Day (what a jip!) Our whole summer consisted of the public pool and King's Dominion.
    (Are you amusement park/ roller coaster fans?- my family highly recommends it :)
    If you were serious- sure e-mail me a picture of Merry and I will give it a go (consider it a house warming gift- unless it comes out terrible in which case you can consider it trash).
