It doesn't happen often, but yesterday was both my birthday and the first day of school. As is usually the case the first day was hot. Oddly enough, this occurred despite a cool summer. I always taught in a hot room, even in schools where there was air conditioning in sections. This was my lot. The weather always seemed to change by the second week, however.
Shauna brought the kids over and we took a few pics and saw them onto the bus. Then, she took the old folks out to breakfast. With the high heat, Sue and I lay low for the rest of the day, especially in late afternoon when it began to pour.
We have been watching the US Open, and our various Canadians have all been eliminated. They didn't quite meet expectations but fourth round for both Bouchard and Raonic isn't too shabby.
