There’s that feel in the air. Fall is around the corner and it gets my witchy blood going even in this Nashville heat. I’m so ready for sweaters, #PumpkinSpiceEverything, and a drop from the 100 degree heat. Part of this longing is triggered yearly with Back to School sales in all the stores and the early arrival of Halloween decorations. I love it!
This year, Back to School takes on a new meaning for Damon and I. We are both returning to school! Damon is seeking his degree in computer science with an emphasis in cyber security and computer forensics. He will be combining what he learns in college with his current training as a Private Investigator and intends to stay in the private sector, helping people in the state.
I am returning to my studies to obtain my Herbalist certification. I began taking classes from Herbal Healer Academy a few years ago but had to stop when I got pregnant. The courses are very experience based with the herbs and not all herbs are safe for women who are pregnant or nursing so I had to take time off to care for my baby and myself. My son has been weened since New Years and I am read to get back to work obtaining my certification.
So it is back to school for us! I am looking forward to all the changes education will bring to our lives. It’s already so sweet to see my son chase his Daddy around talking about going to school. He’s almost 3 and we intend to homeschool him but he has an idea of school from tv shows he’s seen. He wants to help Daddy with his homework and keeps bringing Damon his little back pack for him to take. Its adorable.
What does Back to School look like for you? Are you looking forward to Fall weather (or Spring for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere)?
