Change on the South Side, Rummage Sales, School

Sunday, August 22, 2010. Classes start September 7, 2010. Quiet scenes like this will be rarer around the school, after that.

The open land between South 12th and Ace Hardware/Coborns is filling in. At least, I assume that's why earthmoving equipment's been pushing dirt around there.

Ah, the blissful, unchanging serenity of small town life? Nope: We live in the real world, just like everyone else. August 20, 2010.

I'm looking forward to seeing what goes in there. August 21, 2010.

Another sort of tradition was played out over the weekend at the Stearns County Fairgrounds: the MCCL rummage sale. My wife and #3 daughter picked up an item or two there.

Downtown Sauk Centre: flower pots, old-style street lights, and - sometimes - clear skies. August 9, 2010.

Rummage sales - on a smaller scale - run through the months when it's practical to leave your garage door open, and sit outside for a few hours running.

Rummage sales are a common sight. Giant inflatable pink flamingos? Not so much. August 21, 2010.

Families with school-age kids are probably going through the lists of required materials and checking out clothing. My household's getting ready for the school year, too. We're homeschooling, except for band: so we've never really been 'away' from school. It's been more a matter of merging from one school year to the other, over the summer.
