Bye bye summer

It's already been a busy week here. Looking at my calendar I see that August is almost behind us for another year. The remnants of Fay have been dumping much needed rain on our mountains but making for a string of gray and gloomy days, a foreshadowing of the seasons about to shift.

We have also had a shift in our routine from summer to the start of fall. Fall semester has begun for hubby. Kiddo's dance, art and other activities are beginning again for the academic year. And we began a new grade level with a change in curriculum last week. All of this is much more time consuming, especially for me on the homeschool front. Each jump in grade level places not only more demands on my student but more from me as the teacher as well. More subjects to include, more projects to do. Kiddo is doing great. I'm wiped out by the end of each day! It will take some getting used to, some settling in before I have a rhythm established for my time, as I am taking it in stages. Get the homeschool routine established first, then fill in the cracks of time with making art. Revisit my goals. Evaluate my time and plan a schedule. I am being nudged into autumn whether I like it or not.

Hi Ann,

Love your sunny butterfly! I go back to your old posts regularly for inspiration - especially the colored pencil pieces. Edisto Dunes was simply sublime!
