Sweet September… Let the Chaos Begin!September 22nd, 2009 by jennyonthespot
September, September… sweet, sweet September…
For my family, the start of September is the start of a new season. Fall doesn’t “officially” begin until the 22nd this year (today!), but the heart of Fall for us starts on the first day of school…
Oh the excitement of that first day of school!
After 3(ish) months of lazy summer days we head full-on into
commitments, schedules and a set bedtime (or we should!).
Personally, Fall is my favorite time of year. Some people do “spring cleaning”. I find that Fall is my time to purge and gather and take inventory… not just in and around our home, but also within.
I love the colors of fall, I love pumpkins and the chill. I love the feel of almost-hot coffee sliding down my throat in it’s effort to warm my belly…
This Fall, my family is being kept busy with not only school, but…. can you guess? It starts with an “s”… The “S” word. SOCCER:
But just one activity is not enough! The littlest gets to go to tumbling class once a week and all three will be working hard with over 80 other talented and dynamic kids with KCMT as they get ready for their December performances of Scrooge – The Musical. It’s gonna be awesome! Here is a little shot from the auditions a couple of weeks back:
I apologize in advance. I have a feeling I’ll be sharing a lot about this. My older 2 each have lines, so this means they will be starring on Broadway in no time.
I am certain of it.
Enough of MY family… how about YOUR family? Are your days filled with activities? Do you have a philosophy or strategy when it comes to taking on the start of school and all the “extras”?
Speaking of school… did you know than on average a teacher spends $1200 of his/her own money per year to supplement his/her classroom? If you know of a teacher who could benefit from a $100 Visa gift card to help his/her classroom, head on over to my personal blog to find out how you can nominate a favorite or needy teacher in our community.
