OK, so it is still over 100 degrees in Mesa. It is still the middle of the summer. But, guess what? Some of my grandchildren are already starting school in the next week or so. I just thought a little reminder of when it was that we used to start school would be appropriate. Now they spend those long summer days sweating in the heat and attending class. Of course, the leaves don't fall off the trees in the desert until December, but that has nothing to do with the real Fall.
