September Already?

Happy September 1st!
I can't believe it's September already. Where was summer? There was frost outside on the cars this morning so I think fall is here already. Although I shall mourn the days summer never arrived, I am so stoked, yes, stoked! - for fall. I love autum! I love that Monkey looks so great surrounded by yellows, oranges and reds. My all time favourite pictures of Monkey are all in the fall. I can't wait to capture more this year.
Of course, now I am jinxing myself; and I won't get a decent shot at all now. Doesn't matter. I still love fall.
Here in Ontario, the kiddies are going back to school. Monkey, being only 2, dispite all those strangers who think he's 4 or 5 (he's tall, people! Just really tall. Don't give me evil looks for having my son in a stroller. Bet you had your two-year-olds in strollers too. He's just tall...My 4T pants wearing two-year-old)...Went a little off topic there, didn't I? I'm just a little fed up with people thinking my son is a four-year-old who needs speech therapy. Yes, he knows all his colours and shapes; all his letters (just not in order yet; but he can read his own name) and can count to 20 in English (but he can't count on his fingers. He double counts and not in order), 10 in French and 10 in Spanish (that one is credited to Dora and Deigo...I can't speak Spanish). He's also learning his colours in French and Spanish (this one is thanks to a Baby Einstein toy) too. I'm home with him. I work with him. He's not a kindgardener yet; he's still a toddler.
A toddler who's going for his first denist visit today, while the other school age kids go to school. Monkey chipped his front tooth. We're going to make sure we don't have to worry about future damage from the chip.
It's also a first day for me. I'm going back to work today; saying farewell to my stay-at-home mom days. I've accepted a position at a bank. Today I am going in to sign all the paperwork and what-nots. I've very excited; looking forward to adult conversations again.
And now on to scrappy stuff...

Here's what's posted on So Sketchy today:
I love this picture of DS. We were traveling home from Belleville a few weeks ago. Monkey fell asleep while eatting grapes. He looked so sweet, I had to take a couple of pictures.
Check out Ally's sketch here. It's a great one to use up some of those scraps. Everything (but the cardstock base) was pulled out of my scrap bin. You should try it too!
Until next time...
