back to school

With the yellow leaves fluttering down,  we rush around gathering new shoes, backpacks, supplies, haircuts, hopes.  We note with amazement and pride how tall they have grown.  Time for one last swim, long bike ride, ice cream cone.  It helps, you know, to keep those fluttery back-to-school butterflies calm in the belly.  Bittersweet back-to-school time.  So long summer, hello fresh start.  Everyone's getting straight A's this year, right?  :)  !!

Out bloghopping this morning- I enjolyed reading through yours. I wish we started school in Sept as opposed to the end of August. I hate to see our kids head off to school.... Hope you can stop by my farm for a visit. :)

There is something in the posture, that belies the fact that this might not be a favorite pose.

Cute post, great shot. Here's to the first day back.
