I always love this month. September signifies beginnings; new notebooks and pens, starting projects, a change of seasons and wardrobe. September brings Autumn to the northern hemisphere, and Spring to the southern hemisphere.
Some random fun facts about this month: Band-Aids were invented in the month of September. September 19th is “Talk Like A pirate Day.” Ahoy, matey!…the poem “Mary had a Little Lamb” was published September 1st, 1830 (we celebrate this fact with a toddler in the house), and the very first comic strip was printed in an American newspaper in September of 1875 (source: Dixie Allan).
And for star-gazers, photographers, and those seeking to connect with the cosmos, September 9th will be the last supermoon of 2014.
Whether you have Spring flowers or Autumn leaves, wishing you a wonderful new season.
To me September has always been the beginning of the new year because I was a teacher. And I agree with you you got your new crayons,b your new notebooks, pencils, pens, lesson plan books, new teacher clothes and got ready to start the year with the new children. At the same time you were getting your children ready for school and for fall so it was a very busy time.
