In usual fashion I am welcoming autumn with open arms and hands full of sun ripened tomatoes. Not that I have anything against summer, I don’t. I love her. But she often leaves me tired and parched. So by this time of year I am longing for routine and predictability. Summer, as lovely as she is, tends to leave our family with little of those two. And so, and this very first school day for my kids I can happily state that we are beginning to settle in.
I know a lot of you are ahead of me, but we got a late start on this whole school thing due to a family trip to Disneyland.
