It is so hard to believe that Autumn is here already. Where does time go? The days and weeks are just clicking off so fast. Does anyone else feel like this, or am I the only crazy person around? I guess I must be having fun....LOL!

While I had my head buried in Civics books looking for up to the minute information to shower my students with, my eyes glued to the computer screen searching for new and interesting techniques to get (and keep) my students' attention, and my fingers permanently wrapped around a pen grading the homework that I manage to get only a percentage of my students to complete, Mother Nature went and did this:

Glorious, isn't it? How did I miss this? Have I been so preoccupied that I managed to miss what is right outside my window? In past years, I had my eyes peeled for the first signs of colored leaf would have me grabbing my camera and my son for a spur of the moment photo shoot to document the changing of seasons. Somehow, it just got away from me this year. Thank goodness I opened my eyes when I did, or I would have missed it all. So, on Saturday, I did what any self-respecting mother and scrapbooker would do...I tossed my boy in the car and headed out for the leaves. Thanks goodness I had the camera battery charged!

I took over 100 pictures, and I am itching to scrap. I'm thinking I might bust out the All Fall line from Fancy Pants later this week....sounds perfect to me!

Hope everyone is well. Halloween is upon us....I guess I better keep that battery charged! Enjoy your day!

Oh...and I almost forgot to mention that the Fancy Pants DT girls will be taking turns each week to showcase some cool projects done with FP goodies. You can check out this weeks project here. And..............the news is out.....Fancy Pants will be offereing 2 new, awesome releases very soon! How cool! I love new stuff! You can check both of them out here.
