the kids are back in school. Dance classes have started. Newsletters and art work are starting to clutter the refrigerator. Autumn is just around the corner.
I'm not a big fan of Autumn. It's not that I don't think it is beautiful because it is. And it isn't that the weather isn't fabulous because it is. It isn't even the start of school and the end of the carefree days of summer. I don't know what it is. It just seems like such a melancholy time of year for me. Maybe it is winter just a few short months away. I'm certainly not ready to go there yet. Regardless of the reason for the late autumn angst I'm not there yet, for these first few weeks of the beginning of the season I like the hustle and bustle and return to schedules so I'm going to enjoy it for now - seriously!
Here are my monkeys on their first day of school. Enjoy!
