The Turn of The Season

A SURE SIGN of the coming of fall-- the youngest children are getting sick! David is practically well today and hopefully can go to school tomorrow, but Julia is showing every sign of having whatever he just got rid of. It seems like every time they are out of school for a break, SOMEONE has to get sick and not start back when the break is over! This has been a nice summer here in Oklahoma, not too hot for a change. More rain than normal and not as windy! Today the wind is very strong- I had almost forgotton what it was like. It can be frustrating in autumn because just when the leaves start to turn color, it frequently gets cold too early for the leaves to stay any length of time on the trees; consequently our Fall Color Time is almost nil. I was born and raised in Louisiana, and though I have lived here for almost 25 years I am not totally reconciled to the weather extremes of this state!
