THE SMELL of Fall is not quite in the air but buying supplies for school is in the works!  I find this a great time of year to buy journals, drawing paper, etc. for my own crafting, writing, etc.  And don't overlook office supply stores in your quest as their prices are very competitive with Wal-Mart and others because they buy in such quantities.  But I received a really great site referral from my internet provider newsletter today.  It is called Paperrater @ http://wwwpaperrater.com/ .  This site is FREE and invaluable for students from H.S. through college!  It will check your written papers for a number of grammar, spelling, and even plagiarism long before you hand them in!  I plan to use it for my own writings as well.  I wish we had had computers and sites like this one when I was in school and college!  So check it out whether you have kids in school or college or for your own use.
    I have 3 granddaughters in college now.  Jessica here in SC and Sarah and Kelsey in our home state of NY.  Jessica and Sarah just graduated this June and Kelsey will be a Sophmore this year.  Jessica and Sarah were born just 2 weeks apart and look enough alike to be sisters. 
Jessica walking toward Grandpa on grad night June 2010.  She is enrolled for fall and is going to be a teacher.

Sarah the day of graduation with sister Kelsey giving her a hug. Both girls are going to be teachers.
   Isn't youth wonderful?!

I have to confess that I am looking forward to fall and the cooler weather, but unfortunately it won't last long and we'll be hot again. So, I try to enjoy even the hottest of days.
You have lovely grand daughters and I agree, YES, Youth in itself is beautiful!

Have a wonderful weekend, Kerrie, and Greetings to your husband.

Hi Kerrie Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I so adore the photos of the grands. Aren't they just beautiful? I know you are so proud with them in college, and then the fact that they want to be teachers. How great is that? They are our future.

They do look enough alike to be sisters don't they?

Well I see you and Bill had a wonderful time at the class reunion. It is so wonderful you were both able to go, and Bill you look a lot like your beautiful sister. I can't decide who is prettier. I could also see that poor Isabella missed you while you were gone. She was waiting on her belly rub when you got back.

Have a beautiful weekend you two. Please know how much you are loved.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Kerrie! Oh, I used to love to go and buy school supplies with my children getting ready for school. I guess I could do like you and go find me some wonderful things! :)
Thank you so much for popping in to see my kitchen.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
