Anita's Attic: Summer's End

Yay! Or is it Boo Hoo? Summer is officially gone, and the new school year has started. I'm excited for things to get back to normal, since I need to get a lot of writing done, and it's hard with the kids  home. But on the other hand, I enjoyed having them around.

It's an exciting year for both kids. Caleb is in high school--9th grade--and can I just brag for a minute? He made it as starting quarterback for JV! They have three teams. 9th grade, JV, and Varsity. And he beat out a couple of 10th graders for the spot.

Skylar is in middle school this year, and she made the cheerleading team. She was really worried since so many girls were trying out. Of course she's ecstatic. I'm so proud of both of them. But it's time for momma to get her butt in gear--translated...in the chair--and get moving toward these deadlines. Happy End of Summer!

Anita: I hear you. It's always such a transition. I have for all of my adult life considered the Fall to be the New Year. Maybe because of my years in university life or whatever. It's a beginning and a smile to the summer.

How can the seasons fly by so quickly? I guess that says something about my age. xxox

Cassy, the seasons do fly by so quickly. And I love Fall so I can't complain with this change.

I agree--yay!!! Even though I have no kids in school, I like it when they're in school. And Yay for your
son. That will make the games really interesting. I have three grandchildren in Fall soccer, so I will be busy going to games, too.

I don't have time to be a writer!!

Liz, I feel exactly the same. It's as if I have to squeeze it in, and I don't even have another job besides writing.
