Isn’t it September 1?

It is the first day of school here in Michigan.  It seems strange that it is already Sept 7!

These are my two daughters, Heather (l) and Michelle (r) with Heather’s friend Thea in the middle.  They are each starting 10th, 11th and 12th grades (left to right).  I can hardly believe Michelle is really a senior!  There will be so many firsts and lasts this year.  Heather is joining her sister and friend at a new school this year.  The school they attend is an alternative public high school.  You must apply to get in and then be chosen by lottery to attend.  Heather didn’t make it last year, but progressed up the waiting list so she was able to get in this year.  She is a little nervous about starting a new school (she’s the worrying kind), but I know it will work out wonderfully for her!
For those of you whose children have been in school for weeks, Michigan has a law that school cannot start until after Labor Day.  I like it this way as it seems to fit well with the seasons and rhythm of things.  All the pools close on Labor Day, summer is officially over and it is time to go back to school!
For me, it is time to get back to sewing!  As usual, I have several projects in the works.  My Bees Knees VQB quilt is still waiting patiently to be quilted!  A holiday version of my house table runner is in the works and I am hoping to enter a quilt in the Project Modern quilt challenge.  What is on your Fall quilting to-do list?
