There's a chill in the air and I've noticed
a few maple leaves have fallen...
But nothing means Fall to me like
My days of getting a child off to
school are long gone.
(My son's been out of school for years).
But a couple of our Grandchildren are
returning to class, and this year we have a
beautiful, bright eyed 5 year old
very excited to be
Can you remember that big day?
No, not when your own children
started school. But when YOU
took that first step into that
Those exciting, scary, bigger
than life steps, into that HUGE building
for the very first time?!!!
I remember my kindergarten
teacher, she was actually the same
teacher my mom had when she
started school!!! Wow, (I don't
think that happens very often)!
Her name was Alta Crook...
Miss Crook to us, and she
was a sweet Grandmotherly

Her classroom was
She read us such wonderful books.
She even had a playhouse!!!
Our imaginations were
filled with such wonderment!
I have very fond memories
of my first teacher and her
With all these memories and more
tucked close to my heart,

Remembering that Middle School
is BIG, a bit scary, and a whole new
exciting world to our young little
6th. graders, and I hope as they look
back on these years, they'll also have
some fond memories that they can
tuck next to their hearts!

What's your fave Fall drink?
(Oh, I know it's hot cocoa, but besides that)!
I'm not much of a drinker, other than a nice glass
of wine now and then, but my
McGiver introduced me to
a hot toddy that is very yummy
for those cold Fall nights, (especially when
I accompany him on hunting trips)!
It might be called:
Hot Apple Pie?!
In a large mug add:
1 pkg. hot spice cider mix
pour in boiling water
add a shot of
stir with a cinnamon stick
(...for God's sake Don't Drive)!!!
Have a wonderful Labor Day!
