Okay, so it was Ilene in the song, you get the idea.
Friday was the perfect late summer day. Warm, but not humid, sunny, breezy, 80 degrees. Then Irene's arms carried clouds and rain on Saturday. On Sunday, she unleashed some strong wind gusts and about 10 minutes worth of rain, resulting in two days without power and three without internet. All in all, I'd say we fared very well and consider ourselves very fortunate.
It's now August 31, the last day of August. Though summer will continue into September, the elementary-schooler in me still considers September 1 to be the start of Autumn. Tomorrow I'll hear the yellow school bus picking children up and carting them off to school. When the breeze blows through the kitchen I'll swear I can almost smell freshly sharpened Ticonderoga pencils.
God, I'm glad to be a homeschool Mama.
