Our fall has probably been much like yours - Beautiful and filled with vibrant colors that stop you in your tracks. New schedules, hard times and too many forms to sign. The colors on the cover of Laura Vaccaro Seeger's new picture book, "I Used to be Afraid" feel like they have been gathered from autumn's illustriousness. And inside the beauty continues, in her simple text about conquered fears. I have been using this table to set up a new book on display each week. It makes me happy, to see hands of all ages reach for the titles.
More changes for our sweet Fiona. Today is her second day at another new school. We had been on the wait list for a local public Montessori school, and a spot opened up. Hooray! We knew it was the right place for her, but two new schools in two months is a lot. She is a little disoriented, but we are working hard to help her recenter. She is a very trusting little girl.
And now let the Halloween costume scramble begin. Oy Vey.
