Ever since I was a little girl, the beginning of the school year has signified the beginning of fall. Even though there is (usually) some really hot days left in the year, going back to school welcomes in autumn. Maybe it’s because I don’t really like summer all that much (ugg, hot, humid weather), but summer has never held much appeal. Yes, I was one of those strange kids who actually. liked. school. I was always ready to go back sooner than my parents were ready to send me back.
School started on Monday. The college kids are back in town and have spent the week driving me insane with schedule changes, information requests, and a myriad of minute details that fill my days and keep me from accomplishing any of my normal tasks at work. But I welcome them back because their return signals the return of my favorite season.
