Default Photo challenge #91 'Back to school' {Sept 7/10}

In Canada, today is the first day back to school for the students. I know that in America, many have been back for one or two weeks or even more. The beginning of school unofficially puts an end to summer and the weather here has co-operated as it turned much cooler on the weekend. Here, the beginning of school is apparent by the abundance of school buses on the roads. What does the beginning of the school year mean to you. Come on and show it with photos!
Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again - HAVE FUN!
My photos #1 The front door of the elementary school my kids attended many years ago. #2 buses behind our highschool # 3 a sign on our local high school door this morning. I was sneeking around behind our local highschool this morning. One of the students must have thought I was an employee, as he asked for directions to his classroom!

Ha - back to school for me means the traffic getting really, really bad. But I am sure I can find something more interesting for a photo. It used to mean extra busy-ness in work when I worked in a fine-art and school supplies company, so I guess my main association is with those big orders for powder paints and block paints and so on.

Great shot of your kids! Was this taken the evening before school, or did they have to get up really early on the first day? It looks like it is still dark outside!

Becca, those are great action shots~! So fun to watch your kids play school sports. My own children never went out for team sports....they were more into individual activities.

Thanks Ina!!

There's nothing like a Friday Night High School Football game...LOL!! I did have two cousins that were in the band, but they graduated a couple of years ago...I totally enjoy watching them play sports (3 of my cousins are on the same team)...but the only thing I really did in high school was the art club...I don't even think I went to a football game when I was in high school...Go Figure...

There is nothing worse than going to work/school in the dark and coming home when it is already getting dark...You're completely right Ina...It's depressing!!

I can't believe that fall has arrived so quickly!!

I work nights and I just love looking out of the window (as I walk by) in the summertime and see the dawn breaking at 5 and 5:30. Now, I look out at 6:45 and it's barely getting light.
