The sights and sounds of autumn are finally all around us. Now that it is October, I am enjoying everything pumpkin I can get my hands on….yes, I’m one of “those” people. The weather is getting cooler and its almost time for those little ghosts and goblins to be walking though our streets, although these days costumes are much more complex.

The first week of school is behind us, but there are so many activities and events kicking into full swing.
The Harry S Truman Elementary School PTO has begun its fundraiser with the Kidstuff and SaveAround coupon books. A sample of each book was sent home with children. If you’d like to purchase it, send in the appropriate payment. If you need to order extras, fill out the order envelopes and return to school with payment and additional books will be sent home. If you do not want to purchase them, simply return the books to school.
By the time my column is read, we will be less than a week away from the first day of school.
I’m already feeling the effects of preparing to send my youngest on the bus for the first time – and yes, I’m a nervous wreck. But I have confidence that along with all the other kindergarten parents we can get through this.

Summer is in full swing and that means pools, vacations, trips and...school supplies in stores already? We all know that stores are always way ahead of schedule....but even my daughter has begun bugging to buy school supplies. I know she is excited, but we haven’t even had our “official” vacation yet.
Hoping everyone is having a fun but safe summer so far.
