SEPTEMBER is here!!!


Here comes September, a month where we probably have the best days of the summer, but also the month when we say goodbye to friends we have made during the summer time. Happy times, sad times. 

Holidays don't mean anything if we don't have routines. In July, holidays represented a break in our routines, but now also back to routines is also a break in our  holidays. However, before going on let's listen to this song ("SEPTEMBER") by Earth, Wind & Fire:


So what memories of this summer come to your mind? A summer love, an unforgettable barbecue at the beach, dancing in a disco, a party...?

And what are your expectations for the school year which is about to start? Tell me any changes that happen during this month. In a few days' time you'll be meeting your schoolfriends!!!
