Don't you just love Fall?

"Don't you just love...fall? It makes me want to shop for back to school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
-Tom Hanks, You've Got Mail

As the beginning of school is quickly approaching I can't help but think of this quote!  Probably because I am getting my classroom ready and I have all my school supplies- I hope!  I agree with him though.  I do love fall.  I love that you can wear jackets again.  I love that orange and brown come into fashion once more.  I love the smells- apple cider, pie, peach cobbler, pumpkins!  If you asked my husband he would say that his favorite thing about Fall is football season.  He says it is better than Christmas morning!  Ah-crazy!  To each their own I suppose.  What are some things you love about Fall?

To update all of you on what is going on with me; I'll enlighten you!  I will teach at Westlake High School in Saratoga Springs UT.  It is about a 30 minute commute from my house.  I'll be teaching: Foods 1, Clothing 1 & 2, Interior Design 1 & 2, and Financial Literacy.  I am at least ready for the first week!  After that....wish me luck!  My classroom is nice and new :)  However, my clothing 1 class has an enrollment of 41 students and I only have 30 sewing machines.  That no work!  So, I get to convince them to get out of my class :)  School starts on August 25th, but my contract days begin on Monday.  I am nervous/excited about the new year!  I know it will all go by so fast!  Christmas break will be here before I know it, and so will a bouncing baby girl!  Life for the Pugh's is crazy and fun!

Oh I love that movie and fall and football season! I agree with Zack - the football is the best part! :)

Yay! How fun starting a new school year...I sometimes miss it when fall comes around! (Then I remember the stress and don't feel so bad...)

Fall is my favorite time of year, the only thing I dont' like about it is that winter comes after. I love the browns and oranges and sweaters and smells and everything that goes along with it too!
