Etiquette for correspondence with a professor under whom I may work?

I have emailed a professor about volunteering in her lab and, propitiously for me, she said that she'd be happy to give me this opportunity and will be in contact with me in September. Where do I go from here?

To provide more detail, she says she is short-staffed and will have a better idea of the number of volunteers she needs by mid-September, though as I mentioned above, she said she'd be happy to have me. Perhaps I am over-thinking this, but should I respond to her email now? Also, in the event that she forgets about me, how could I politely remind her?
