Hi Sharon, Where did this summer go, seems to fly by quicker and quicker every year.  Enjoy the last weeks of August!

Good Morning Sharon!  Fall is in the air this morning!   School starts here in North West Florida this coming Monday the 22nd.  All my grand-kids are eager to go.

School starts here in our county on Monday, the 22nd. I like your post, Sharon. It's nice to see some welcome events easing the kids into school again.

Sharon- I love the idea of the welcome events; I can still remember my Kindergarten teacher coming to my house before school started.

Toni:  I think NH is one of the last to go back...but then again we stay in school much longer at the other end!

Kathy:  I didn't go to kindergarten...not popular back then in the olden days, LOL!  We started in 1st grade back then!  My kids started in Nursery School, age 4.

My daughter has been back to school for two and a half weeks already!  The summer goes by so fast it seems!  I am glad I am not teaching anymore with a summer that goes by this quick!
