Good afternoon all! How was your weekend? Mine was good, and quite sunny. Even though yesterday was Labor Day I went to work. I've only been working one afternoon a week lately so it would have been sort of silly to take the day off. ;)
Well, here we have the first boot post of the season! Sunday morning was just cool enough to try out my new t-shirt dress (yes, another new thing) with my trusty brown boots. The new dress features two shades of blue stripes, which tied in with the navy blue cardigan I wore. A braided brown belt cinched in at the waist was a color companion for the brown of my boots. The whole look was a comfortable church outfit.

The smell of chimney smoke in the air this morning reminded me of my school days; it must have reminded me of beginning the educational year in September. As most children, I didn't relish every moment of education, but my experience in home school was a good part of a healthy childhood. It was a simpler time in my life.
I remember doodling in the corner where I wrote the date on my paper. I remember reading my history textbook on a warm day in high school. I remember crying over elementary math. I remember beginning a new school year with a unit study on horses. I remember eating lunch with friends after our history class. I remember driving to the home where I took chemistry with other students. I remember going to the pumpkin patch on field trips.
Though I may not have realized at the time. I was making memories that I would look back on with pleasure. Not everyone has fond memories of their school days. God chose for me to have a pleasant experience being schooled at home, and to have a personality that enjoyed academic pursuits above more physical ones. What about you, reader?
Do you have any fond memories of school days or earlier than current school days?
Would you rather forget school?
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
