The Dog Dayz

I cannot believe that "summer" is almost over! I am extremely excited that it is being that I am a girl who appreciates the colder temps and waking up when it's still dark outside. I tend to catch this bug of anticipation when summer is ending and the school year is starting. It's funny how even though I haven't been in school for five years September still feels like more a 'new year' to me than January.

I was sitting back thinking about how nice it will be when we're busy, (I'm a bit weird that way, I love busyness!). When each person has their own color marker to use on the family calendar in order to keep track of their activities. I signed up the girls for the fall session of swimming lessons and got excited to have an activity. Then I decided to think of how/where I would be volunteering this fall, stuff like that.

That's when I realized that we are already at the point of needing a family calendar! Our weeks are full. The difference is that with smaller kids the majority of the activities happen before supper and not after. I know that having full weeks mean that the days will fly by and that has me excited too. I am not ready to have a baby tomorrow, (fingers crossed Elizabeth!), but I am so excited to add our third addition before we ring in the New Year.

I'm sure not a fan of the dog days of summer, I love the ironic fast pacedness of the holidays, but I'd rather take it without the heat! I hope everyone, (especially my three loyal readers), has a great fall, full of activity and blessings and challenges. Happy New Year!

I remember that feeling of September being a new beginning. I think labour day should be someplace else in the calendar and September 4 should be our New Year. lol

I feel the same as you- that September is the 'new year'. I begin to anticipate the wearing of jeans and sweaters and eating hearty stews with fresh baked buns. :) I love the scheduledness of fall.

I totally think of September as the new year...I love thinking about curling up in a warm sweater with a good bowl of soup/stew and a steaming cup of coffee with some yummy still-warm baking!

I'm craving the routine of fall as well :)

yep, being a teacher September is totally a new year. I''m wondering how I will handle this one, not being in the classroom - thanks for the fingers crossed ;)
