All around the country, our kids are back in school again. By this time—hopefully!—the students are settled into the routines of their new grade levels and the teachers have survived the new-school-year chaos. And it is chaos. I know too many teachers not to realize that!
Even a couple of my heroines are teachers. Kerry Anne MacBride, from FAMILY MATTERS, teaches high-school art classes. Kayla Ward, from A RANCHER’S PRIDE, teaches American Sign Language.
Of course, for the most part, it’s not the teachers or kids who are celebrating the start of the school year, but the parents. LOL
I’ve always been a student and probably always will be. There’s so much to learn in this great, big world—something as kids we don’t always appreciate.
But even as an elementary-school student, I looked forward to going back to school in the fall.
There’s so much going on at the start of a new year. New teacher, classroom, textbooks. New classmates. New clothes! :-)
To this day, I get most excited over brand-new, never-been-cracked-open notebooks and an array of brightly colored pencils and pens. (I guess I was always meant to be a writer.)
How about you? What are your favorite items—or memories—from your first days back in school?
All my best to you,
