By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Vocabulary Top 10:

Would you have gone to this camp when you were a child, or would you send your children here?
Do you think we need to teach children more about how to manage money?

    I would send my daughters to this camp to learn how to manage their finances and also touching on both philanthropy and social responsibilities. Much more important than to gain money and administrate your finances is to concern and to help each other, mainly those with fewer resources and opportunities. I consider education is the better legacy that we can give to the children and together this we can to plant the seed of compassion and mutual help because are the good actions that make us up a better human and the material things will stay here on this World.
