Mid-week, first week.
Third year of homeschooling.
We already lit all the fall scented candles.
And visited Starbucks twice to do math.
There is something oddly comforting about the schedules and schoolwork that wait for us after all the long, lazy summer days. It's a new beginning--familiar, exciting, and sweetened just an extra bit by pumpkin lattes and soft cardigans. Plus, I can start wearing my Doc Martens again and ditch the flipflops. Which might be the best part of it all.
I want this school year to be marked by good mornings, slow-paced days, time spent together, growing friendships, creativity in the mundane, and noticed beauty.
Hope your fall is filled with all the things that make this time of year special...
That wonderful messy, mix of calendar dates;
homework; hot mugs of coffee;
stews and soups; pumpkins on the step;
and cozy, early evenings at home.
