{it must be September...}

today is definitely a
green boot day
with the
September rain
comes a new school year
{September lesson #1 ....}
We all are students
and life is a school...
we are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the
curriculum that appear and fade away,
but the lessons we learn will be lifelong.
{September lesson #2....}
remember to have some
puddle splashing fun today....

happy September my friends

Green is my favorite color! I don't even own a pair of rainboots but we sure got my daughter a few pair for her move up to Seattle. I will splash in metaphorical puddles today!

Unknown said...

Do you live next door? Sometime I dream that you do. I only wish that I could have a drop or two of your creative wisdom. By the way, just who makes those aDORable boots? Rain-ie here too this morning and I'm loven' it.

Unknown said...

One more thing. Did I miss something? Aren't those your feet on the cover of Artful Blogging with the flower, lace stocking and too cute black shoes....or is that your sister. It sure looks like one of your great pictures.

Claudia said...

Happy September, Koralee!


birdie blue said...

we're splashing in a lot of puddles here today, too.

one of my girls is on an outdoor education 'geo-cache' day in our town's ravines and at the beach. i'm wondering just how muddy she's going to be be...


Catherine said...

Oh yes ~ I think I would need rubber boots here as well if I were to go outside. But since I don't have a lovely green pair such as this ~ I shall stay in today! :)

Celestial Charms said...

What is it about a photo of a pair of rubber boots, that always warms my heart? Must be the idea of fun, discovery, and happiness that usually are gleened from a walk inside them! Love the photo, and the thoughts my friend.

Dear Koralee~
You are so right. We are on thip planet to perfect our souls. We do this best by solving what is surrounds us in the most loving way. I heard the other day. There are no such thing as a PROBLEM, there is only SOLUTION. So true! Solution with grace will always solve. Time will heal.
Love you so much!

that attitude!
Thanks, sweetie!

Being in the Bellingham area we have the same weather for the most part. Thanks for the reminder to do a little puddle jumping.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
yes! We do learn something new every day... whether we are aware of it or not!
I love this quote too:
Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.
written by Oliver Wendell Holmes

I love your autumn boots... so fun and
Thinking of you as you start a new year!
I will miss my Amanda ~ She's been here for a week and I wish we taught together~
I mentored her when she started teaching ~ and now she's mentoring me with all of her wonderful ideas!
Blessings Always to you dear ♥

Sarah B said...

Hi Koralee! What a cute post - I agree we must always take the opportunity to learn and always remember to have a bit of fun while we are doing it :)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

My sweet precious bluebird,

Oh Koralee, I have been thinking of you while I am in my classroom preparing for 50 children this year. I am exhausted already! BUT, we had the most incredible speaker on Tuesday at our district kickoff meeting and she was a retired teacher who delivers her message in skit that she developed; she was a hoot and a half and drove home some universal, classic and lifelong lessons that we should never forget....and it all had to do with what you are suggesting here...and to ENJOY and laugh. Oh, I wish you the best and most memorable school year my sweet...and thank you for coming to visit during this harry-scarry busy time!!!!


ELK said...

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

Dear Koralee, I love your quote. I am in a really hard class right now. Ha ha- The curriculum is tough, but the lessons are very valuable! Thanks for the reminder!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Dear Koralee,
Weare just back from the warm sun of Tuscany but, I can feel a chill in the air here in the UK...... and, there is nothing better than splashing in puddles with your wellies on !!
Have a lovely holiday weekend. XXXX

Unknown said...

Tricia said...

Hi that quote! It is so true. I saw that you have a new post with some cute pink creamers, but for some reason I can't get to it. It says the page is missing :(

Best wishes for a great weekend!

Shell said...

Happy September!! It is true we are all students of life. Might as well have fun as we learn our lessons.

Rizzi said...


FrenchBlue said...

Dear One~
These pink creamers are the best!! They remind me of cake! Every Easter I would make a bunny cake. The white cake batter was colored this EXACT color. Creamy pink cake batter~~~ I would eat most of it before it was baked:) Have a fun weekend my sweetest one!

I love squishing in the mud with boots on! My daughter loves it too Koralee.
