Birthdays and School

I remember as a girl looking forward to when school began. Going back to see old friends, shopping for a few new clothes, having new teachers, learning new subjects in school. And with it came the cool scent of autumn. This past week, we've had some fall-like temperatures here in SE Kansas. Amazingly cool for August. And my girls went back to school. Only they don't seem to be as optimistic about it as I once was. Our youngest had a birthday the day before classes began, and we went on a shopping spree to celebrate. Our middle daughter had her first day at college today. Oh to be young again. So much to look forward to.
