After a VERY rainy and windy weekend, the sun is shining today, but there is a "nip" in the air...fall is on it's way.

This is the last day of summer vacation for my kids...school tomorrow and a little sadness....in a way...LOL....this is the last year that all three of mine will be in school....oldest graduates...so I will take a photo of the three of them together tomorrow. I always take photos, and 6 years ago I took one of the three of them together, as it was the only year they were all in the same school, and it was my youngest DD's first day of school. My oldest is thinking of going away to university next year.....we' have lots of universities local, but they are quite a bit more expensive than some, so we'll see. I know she will to what is right for her.

I have spent the morning doing laundry and trying to come up with new instructors for piano for youngest and guitar for DS. I got the piano solved, but not the guitar. DD's piano teacher isn't coming back to our area to teach and I'm kind of glad for various reasons. I spent a good part of 1/2 hour talking with a lady that will begin teaching her next week. She has a daughter the same age as my daughter, and she sounds like a really great person. She's cheaper and does her program a little different....so we'll try it. DD is excited about a new teacher and I'm hoping it all works out. It isn't looking like I will find an alternate teacher for my son. I guess I will go ahead and register him at the place he has gone the last couple of years. My son is very quiet and guitar lessons are something he enjoys. I am just not completely thrilled with the place he goes...they are expensive and the teachers are not the most qualified for what they charge. DS doesn't play in the recitals or anything...he just wants to play with the instructor each week.....I would never deny him his lessons...never...I just wish I could find someone that teaches privately like I did with the piano...in their home.....oh well.

Anyway, I guess I should get a move on...we've got alot of running around to do today....
enjoy your day everyone....pictures tomorrow...I promise!!

What a shame to have a rainy weekend. I hope the next days are sunny and cool for you!

All my children took piano. My daughter taught herself the guitar. I hope you are able to find a private guitar teacher for your son.

Looking forward to school pictures!
