Falling into Autumn!

It would seem that fall is finally here (and as a result that spring/summer blog theme had to go)!  I swear that it feels like it just fell out of the sky over night...or somehow I fell into it, like traveling to another dimension.  How is it that we're this far into the year already?  Didn't we just start spring a couple weeks ago?  It would seem that time flies no matter if your struggling or having fun.  There are two reasons that I feel this way today.

The first is that it is overcast here and rainy.  Today's high is about 73 degrees, and until now its been 90 or 95 with sunny skies and the occasional thunderstorm.  Its such a dramatic difference that it really feels like autumn has finally arrived!!

The second reason that I know its starting to cool off and the seasons are changing is only for the fact that Sara started her second year of preschool today!  She was excited to go back to her "old school", as she calls it, and see her friends.  Of course being a good mom, I took the morning off work and meet her at school to see her off on her first day.  It was her father's parenting day, so I made special arrangements to be there.  And of course, it was worth it to see how excited she was that I made it and she could share her classroom with me.

Here's my peanut waiting to go inside her classroom!  I swear she's happy to be there...really!!

Here she is inside the classroom with her name tag on and going to join her first circle time of the year.  She was so excited to see all the kids and everything going on it was really hard to get her to hold still long enough to take her picture.  Sorry its kind of blurry, did the best I could.  Stupid camera phones!!

So there you have it, Booga's first drop off at preschool.  There will be many more adventures I'm sure.  Lots of new things going on this school year, like riding the school bus to daycare part of the week.  That should be interesting!  And fall is only here for a short visit it appears.  Supposedly its suppose to be back up in the 90's by the weekend.

I hope that fall is a good season for us this year, it hasn't always been in the past.  But I'm sure this year will be different.  Sara will be learning to read and write, I will be working hard at home and work, and there's always the stress of the holidays to look forward to!  I can't wait; bring it on!
