Unfortunately, we on this corner of the globe are not celebrating the beginning of autumn quite yet. We took a walk along the port in Jaffa on the weekend. The sun was scorching, the sea was shining and although there were no people around, the heat prevented a feeling of peace.
But september 1st marks the first day of school for Shelly.
It was quite a different experience from my first day a school all those years ago.
It took us a while to decide which school to send her to but i am very happy with our decision.
Among other great things, the school puts a big emphasis on art and music - i was happy to read Heathers post last week where she says "The workshop facilitator said 'arts are the single most important thing for children, from the time they can hold a crayon into their teenage years.' " And as Heather says, i too am happy to believe this.
So i wish all the 5 and 6 year olds beginning school today a wonderful year!!
