It’s back to school time for the Montgomery grandkids. Summer is rapidly passing even though the temperatures are still in the 100’s and we have had no rain. Unfortunately, school now starts before Labor Day which should be against the law. It has been a great summer for everyone with the Anniversary party and exotic trips to places like Italy, Yellowstone, Colorado and of course Santa Fe.
Now we come into a favorite time of year for the family, which includes cooler weather, football. pumpkins, Halloween, Thanksgiving and topping it all of with Christmas. It’s that time of year which Ray Bradbury describes as October Country; where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilight lingers and midnights stay. It’s a time for autumn thoughts, ghostly tales and the anticipation of Halloween.
It’s really the most fun time of year.

That is a nice way to describe the transition

Are we related??? Sounds just like our family. Maybe I can pack up all of our brood and move in with ya'll and save on electricity. And you are so, so right about school. Our forefathers never intended for children to be in school in 100 degree weather before Labor Day. You can't even enjoy the first college football game with your grandkids before school starts nowadays.....
