The First Day of School

Emmanuelle enjoying summer...

Seriously, where did the summer go? I live in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where just yesterday, new snow fell on the lovely enchanted mountain tops. We only have about a month of summery weather, and I have to say, it is gone. Today, I wore a tank top, a long sleeved shirt, a fleece, and a scarf. My feet were cold in just one pair of socks. Winter is coming...

Quin's first day of school

...but first there is fall. My favourite time of year. I was married on September 20th, outside, in a warmer place, because I love the cool breezes and the changing leaves. This year, our big fall news, although it actually happened last week, in late August, is that our eldest daughter started school! She is in full time French Kindergarten. She loves it! She loves to see her friends, she loves to ride the bus, she loves to eat her lunch at school. She is a go-getter with a sunny personality and school agrees with her. What a milestone!

The last craft of summer vacation...

Her little sis, and I miss her around here. We miss crafting, art making, baking, and playing with her all day, but I am looking forward to all the days off of school when we can do that. They will be even more special. We were able to get lots of creative time in in the days before school started.

Now that it is fall, I will be blogging more. I promise. I hope you all had a good summer and are enjoying the last days of it...

We have just gone through our 9th 'first day of school' with our daughter, a totally different experience where my presence inside the school was anathema to the 8th-grader, but still needed in private up to the door. I will miss these summer days too. Have fun, Quin!
