Photo of September: the month of change

Kira Cox on September 13th, 2013 @ 05:27 PM No comments

September always seems to be a month full of changes. The seasons change from summer to fall, with the days getting much shorter and the trees start their annual color shift. For kids and college students, it’s the start of a new school year and grade level, with all the new clothes and school supplies that go along with it. For adults, September is frequently the month for moving into a new home as leases expire.

And here in Kira’s World, this September has one more change than usual. Starting next week, I’ll be leaving the Alderwood Branch for Verity’s headquarters, where I’m going to be the new marketing coordinator. In the new position, I’ll be helping the marketing department connect Verity with current and future members, ensuring we’re providing the best products and services that we can. (I’m also going to be helping run Verity’s blogs, so you’ll still be able to find me here on Our Voices!)

I’m excited for new my position, and all the different opportunities I’ll have with it, but I’m also going to miss my friends and members from the Alderwood Branch. When I started here a year and a half ago, I didn’t realize I was going to be welcomed with open arms into a tight-knit, loving family. I’ll still be able to see everyone, and may even periodically pitch-in or work remotely from the branch! But, I’m going to miss my first Verity family, even as I’m welcomed into my second.

What changes are you experiencing this September?

This summer has been wonderfully warm and dry. But Western Washington, and those of us that live here, aren't used to it. So, let's all do a rain dance and get some liquid sunshine to fall on our baked land.

The football season is upon us. The Seahawks won their first pre-season game last night, but there's still a long road ahead, especially for those of us who don't follow the sport but live with someone who does.

If you've never taken time to watch a young child discover the world around them, I encourage you to do so. It's hours of amazement and fun.

I took my three-month-old son on his first airplane ride last weekend. What could have been an exhausting experience ended up being an uplifting one that reminded me there are still good people out there.

New moms have to develop new skills quickly while caring for their bundle of joy, but the most usesful seems to be the ability to do everyting with only one hand.

I've been a mom now for just over a month and have a new-found respect for what moms go through on a daily basis, especially during the first month.

Knitting alone or in a group of friends can be a wonderful way to relieve stress... and create gifts at the same time!
