More Fall Changes

Oh, how things can change quickly.
Here is the school field (I just love the tree at the bottom of the field!) about three weeks ago. It was a beautiful day!
And here is the same spot today. The gorgeous tree is more difficult to spot, as it is all bare. How did those leaves fall so quickly?? Well, I guess that's why we call the season 'fall'!
Can you see some snow on the mountains? They were so beautiful this morning, with a dusting of powdered sugar. Mmmm! This is the kind of day that makes me like the season!
We had our school Remembrance Day assembly this morning and watched a video about a Canadian nurse serving in World War I. I cried.
Tomorrow, I will go with my dad to the cenotaph ceremony. We will listen to the speeches, watch the veterans carry flags and lay wreaths, listen to the Last Post and Reveille, and spend a minute in silence to remember.
And, of course, we will wear our poppies.
Never forget.

Vancouver is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL places on earth on days like today! I miss those clear, crisp days when the Fall colours are heightened by the blue of the sky. Simply superb! One really feels glad to be alive on days like these.

And I love the way Remembrance Day is acknowledged over there. You guys do such a great assembly each year. I was moved to tears when we attended some over there too. It IS good to remember....

Thanks xo
