My favorite September memory is September in the Northwest. All summer long in Washington you can get rainy days. Sometimes quite cool summers all summer. But come September and you get what they call "Indian Summers"' The weather is the most perfect weather on earth. When I think of my favorite September memory there comes to mind.

Praises she is good as gold now!! Wish her a Happy Birthday from Oregon and I pray your memories just continue to grow in the happy category.
We just spent the morning garage sailing and my hubby found all kinds of treasures for his hunting trip and for around the yard. I luckily did not find anything to clutter the house. I would have bought it if I had found "it".
Today is my little one's 6th bithday. Her birth day has to be my best and worst memory of September. (to explain... she was a month premature, had trouble breathing, and had to be in the NICU for 10 days. She's good as gold now, though.)

Sept. is full of great memories for me!! I was an only child and had few neighbor kids to play with all summer, so I could hardly wait for school to start and to ride the bus with all my friends. A new lunch box, new dresses (no pants were allowed in my school days) and breaking in new shoes.
Mom and I were always picking the last of the garden and freezing most of it or canning it. The fruit trees were heavy with fruit and it was time to dig the potatoes.
When we had kids, we camped all summer and then Labor Day Weekend was our last big campout with friends. We were so blessed to live here on the Oregon Coast and have so much to do while camping.

No matter which hemisphere you live in, September is a time of change. For most of us, it's back to school time, Labor Day holiday, and summer is ending & fall starts.
What are some of your favorite memories or traditions for this time of year?
We don't have kids, & live on a fixed income, but we always try to get a couple $ worth of school supplies to donate (to school supply drives).We also stock up on any school/ office supplies we may need (but don't seem to need anything this year).
Moemory of this time of year-- When i was in middle & high school, I ran cross country in the fall & track in the spring. So, in the fall i remember doing our warm ups while the football team was a cross the field, and either doing lots of laps on the track (while the football team or sometimes marching band was practicing), or running miles & miles on surface streets (there was one time we/ I literally ran to my house & back, & it was a good 3- 3.5 miles from the school.) i can pretty much say i got to see & smell the seasons change while running :) Nowadays it's a good thing if i walk 10 mins...
