It's back to school time and fall is creeping in with cooler weather. Many new adventures await as we enter this strange world of Covid 19. When I was a boy, the fall always was exciting because of going back to school and meeting new friends, and new teachers. the circus and fairs would come around our town about that time always with their own weirdness. These days everything seems a little strange. This episode we visit the wonderful world of the Circus and get a little advice about how to be happy with what we have.  Let's celebrate this strange new world with a fun and exciting story from my friends at Centennial Elementary in Gainesville, GA.
