I spent the morning in the loveliest way: snapping headshots of all the new students at the boys' school. They are all so cute and happy, and again I felt enveloped by the warmth and love that pervades the campus. It's like everyone is getting a big, firm hug all the time. And that's a multipurpose meaning of firm: literally, a good not weak hug, and also in the sense of firmness of expectation and schedule and purpose. Thank you school! A bubbling blackberry pie just emerged from my oven and is making my kitchen awfully fragrant right now. I'm off to pick up the kids but might just bake something more later. Though it's warm out, it was cool this morning, leaves are starting to fall, and you can sense that Fall is on its way. I love it!
