Hooligan Zoo

Two Zookeepers… many Hooligans… It's always feeding time at this zoo!

The first day of… school?

on September 12, 2009

Ah, September…  it sure brings back feelings of old, of the excitement over getting on the big yellow bus, of new pencil crayons and erasers.  New shoes that make your feet look big, and the wondering if any of your friends will notice.

School started this week for those of the going to school nature.  We’re been “schooling” all summer, so the change wasn’t that huge for us.

We did, however, get together with some friends to celebrate the beginning of a new school year.

Mostly we were celebrating the fact that we could go to the zoo and not be trampled by a trillion people.

It was really a glorious day, but I think we all felt the difference in the heat.  While the calendar itself won’t say fall for a couple of weeks, you can feel it… smell it… sense it coming.

I am so thankful that we could all spend our mornings with what we needed to do, and then come together and enjoy the gift of this day.

It was actually pretty comical. We were in the splash pad, and thinking, my goodness, there do seem to be a lot of hooligans here in spite of it being a school day… then we called them all for lunch… and the splash pad emptied! They were all ours!

Ah Fall.  It’s good to be here.

And now back to work for all of us!

Well… at least until the next sunny day…
