The Importance of September

September is an important month and we are almost half way through another September season. Every year it marks the beginning of somethings and the ending of all things related to summer. Here are the reasons that September is so special.
  • The new school year has begun and it gives every student the opportunity to make a fresh start with their education. September is the best time to start getting more organized and to put more effort into grades and school work. It can be the time to start a new sport and make new friends. September and the beginning of the school year is the best time to begin the year with a new slate and make it your best school year ever.
  • September is Childhood Cancer awareness month. This is a good opportunity to learn about the variety of diseases that affect children and those that could benefit from more research and fund raising efforts. It can be a good time to get involved with the cause and to  make a contribution to help someone dealing with this disease.
  • September is the month that we celebrate Labor Day. We praise and acknowledge those who work so hard to support their families and to those whose efforts have made the work place a safer place.
  • September is the beginning of fall. Crisp sunny days, cool nights, bright fall colors, sweet smells of apples, pumpkins, and burning leaves. September and October are the best months to soak up the last of the warm weather and prepare for the oncoming winter season.
  • September brings with it a peaceful feeling for most. It is the end of the extreme heat and more comfortable temperatures that allow us to walk, run, hike, and bike while enjoying the beauty of nature during the changing of the leaves.
  • September brings the last of the garden veggies, herbs, and blasts of summer flowers before the winter settles into it's new dormant state of winter. Baking cookies, apple crisp, and pumpkin pie along with carmel apples, cider, and visits to the orchards all stir up family memories to warm the heart.
September offers new beginnings, great photo opportunities because of the natural beauty at this time of year, and a time to relax and rejuvenate in preparation for the soon to be upon us Holiday Season. Take time to enjoy September this year.
