Day 2 of Happy



I'm joining FringeGirl for 31 Days of Happy.  

Day 2:  Happy New Year

I know it sounds weird, but I tend to evaluate years by the school year calendar rather than the traditional January 1st to December 31st deal.  In my head, it looks like this:

School starts (beginning of year)
End of Summer = End of year

Don't judge me, it's how my head works.  

So fall (in my head) is like a new beginning...school starts and it's off to new things.  

Every year we have a fall party on my husbands side of the family.  

Last fall:





This fall:



We do have other kids...it's just that the others are much harder to nail down for pictures...they protest relentlessly.  Even Lucy is beginning to rebel against the camera.  Hooligans.

It's crazy how much changes in a years time.  

And yet, so much stays the same.  

It's what makes life, life.  I'm thankful for the gift of it.  Makes me happy.

    Your head works just fine...you just live in the wrong hemisphere. Here in Australia we have our summer holidays over December/January and then start the new school year.
