We are about to say adieu to the month of August and I did enjoy the lovely and unusual cool mornings we had. Obviously Mother Nature was giving us a fragrant little surprise, as the lawn and foliage around my house were wet with dew, filling the air with a heady sweetness.
The back-to-school madness has begun for some La Cañada families and is about to begin for others. Car pools are beginning to form, heralding the beginning of another school year.
It has been a very long time since I was ferrying kids to and fro, but I look back on those days with a certain amount of nostalgia, even though some of them were rather frantic. Unfortunately, my grandchildren live too far away for me to re-enter the car pool lines. Heather’s children, Catherine and Ryan, are in Palo Alto and Christopher’s kids — Aidan, Lucan and Morgan— are in England.
