Chuckles and Chortles

Can you believe that it’s September already? Neither can I. But I have no complaints. It’s been a beautiful summer.

Friday we drove to a place in this big city:


Where we could see lots of animals...like this one:


Can you guess where we spent the entire day?
I’ll give you a hint: It begins with the letter ‘z’ and ends with double ‘o’.
That's right! I knew you’d get it. You’re all so smart.

We returned home happy but exhausted from this outing. And I snapped over 400 images while I was there. Lots of pictures to share! Doing the happy dance ♪♫♫♪

Anyway, let’s get this week started with some humour. Today it’s all about the start of the school year...










Happy Labour Day for everyone who is off today.
Wishing you all a great month!

    1. When I'm out snapping photos, it's always a good time. One of my daughters started school last week; the other one started today. Back to our routines, now!

  4. Yes, the ancient use of the semi-colon, LOL! And the "hormone centre powerpak" applies to all adolescents, doesn't it? Looking forward to your zoo photos.

  6. ROFL! These were great! Yeah, when school starts up again I feel this odd sort of "I'll be trapped forever" feeling welling up inside of me. Thank goodness that's in the past. My son and I were in the car driving past his old school (before we home schooled) and the sign read: "Your children will love it here!" and my son let out this totally sarcastic, "Yeah..." and then put up his hands on either side of his face and feigned a child pressed against glass with this totally helpless look on his face wishing to be free. LOL! Well, you know where we're coming on the school scene. College is different... middle school and high school... ack! Hope you have a great week!

    1. I think middle school and high school are tough times for kids. And yes, college is so different.

      Hope you are having a good week so far!
