Fall is definitely settling here in Michigan. Increasing clouds and coolness today means pumpkin carving and The Great Pumpkin, cutting out spiders and chili for dinner.

We are easing in to curriculum -- we have largely been self-directed learners here -- but we are testing the waters on something more formal. After the disastrous experiment of school, we are healing from some pretty intense trauma and are trying to take care of one another.

I'm glad to have found this forum.

What is it like in YOUR world today?
