52 Ancestors : Week # 37 – Back To School

Here we are in September already! How did THAT happen?! For Week # 37 of Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestor Challenge, the writing prompt is Back To School. Typically fall is my favourite time of the year. On my morning walk you can already feel the crisp air. On a personal note, this year Back…
