Here we are back again to start another new quarter. It's number six for me now and it is strange and exciting to think that I am almost at the half way point here at Sherman. The summer quarter is over and mother nature is making sure that we are clear on that. I went from shorts, flip-flops and t-shirts to jeans and a sweatshirt as the second week of the fall quarter began. Of course, coming from more northern climates, it just feels good to me. The holidays and treacherous travel are now just around the corner, along with hot chocolate and thicker blankets. Change is a constant in life and the changing seasons are a reminder to us that we can never get too comfortable with the way things are because usually sooner rather than later life is going to take a turn and we need to be ready to turn with it.
