Back to School !

Trapper Keeper
September marks the end of summer, and the beginning of fall.  In the U.S.A., the school year starts in September.  When I think back to my younger days, I remember the excitement of starting a new school year.   Since public schools in the states don't make students wear uniforms, the shopping malls are crowded at this time, as everyone is out buying new clothes for school.   In addition to that, many stores are filled with students buying supplies for school.  I remember when I was in middle school, everyone had a Trapper Keeper.  A Trapper Keeper was like a super notebook; it was thick and could hold many smaller notebooks, folders, pencils, and other supplies inside. Instead of students having to carry around all their notes and homework with many folders and papers separately, one could keep them all together in a Trapper Keeper!  I think mine was just filled with drawings, doodles, and notes to my girlfriend.

I am going to start posting questions at the bottom of my blog.  If you would like to practice your English, please write your answer in the comment section below.

Today's question:  What comes to mind when you think of September?

  1. September is autumnal.
    It is a harvest season.


    Mackerel pike, eggplant, chestnut, and sweet potato.

    Especially, the matsutake mushroom is very expensive.
    However, it is very popular, and it is delicious.
