september [36/52]

September, to me, means new beginnings. It’s that back to school state of mind that never really goes away, no matter how old you are.

But please tell me, how did my girl get to be this old? How?

I’ve done these first day of school shots since, well, her first day of school. Up until this year, she’s held up how many fingers for whatever grade she was in.

This year, we ran out of fingers.

I tell ya, seems like grade six was just last year :(

For all of the feelings of having a fresh start that September brings, it also sadly heralds the end of blissful summer days.

Yep, the days are getting shorter …

and the critters are stocking up …

and yet, everywhere you look, Mother Nature is still putting on a show …

(allergy sufferers, look away)

I’m sad to see summer wind down, but I have to say that Autumn is my most favorite time of year.

I’m looking forward to cozy sweaters and painted trees :)

    I feel like such a schmuck for failing so miserably on the 52 – but I’ve been loving following along! I’m totally with you on fall and can’t wait for the leaves to start falling, the crisp to the air, the thick sweaters, wool socks, the whole nine yards. Hope you’re heading into September well!

    You said it so well! My exact sentiments. Summer is pretty much over now that the kids are back in school. Have a wonderful week.

    I started to write about September being about endings and beginnings. I found the poem instead. :)
