Back to School

I pulled into Bethel this morning and there were balloons lining the entrance and, hanging near the parking lot was the “Welcome Students” banner that marks the beginning of the new school year.  It’s hard to believe that fall is right around the corner.  All signs point to it.  The days are getting shorter, the chill is back in the air, and the State Fair is already half over.  Unbelieveable.  I’m not one bit ready to say that summer is almost over, though it will be fun to have the students back.  The wide-eyed freshman who have no idea where to go, the upperclassmen that think they own the place, the scent of the newly fallen leaves and the crisp fall air, the stench of the football players’ equipment in the downstairs hallway, ahhh… isn’t it lovely.  I’m actually looking forward to fall, if only the weather would remain just about as awesome as it was today.  Mid-70s and sunny.  Now that’s lovely.
