First Firsts

When does the first blush begin to appear on the maple trees? When do the crickets begin their insistent song? When do the apples bend their branches? When is the first hay cutting? When is the last?

It may be my favorite part of homeschooling, our First Firsts days. What do you see this month that wasn't there last month? What does September sound like (crickets)? 

Yesterday was the first of September.
