The first day of school came and went. There were No. 2 pencils to sharpen, nerves to unjitter with special snacks and warm smiles, and unscuffed backpacks to fill with notes for home. Photos taken on front lawns and porches and at desks and in front of classrooms. Old friends and teachers to wave to and new friends to be made.
I think one of the reasons I love back-to-school is all it symbolizes: new beginnings, fresh starts, goals to set, and challenges to meet.
This first week I’m walking her into her classroom every morning. The sights and sounds take me back to my own elementary school years. Miss C is still at the age where she wants mommy by her side and I’m happy to be her escort to ease any nervousness she might have. Nothing makes me happier as a parent than to know that my girl truly loves school.
