Ahh, the dog days of summer. I can remember the smooth concoction of excitement and irritation that the first day of school provided each year. There was a sense of routine that would be shattered and recreated. It was another time of the year that my family always used as another opportunity for New Year’s Resolutions.
And this year, though my clothes are much larger and my duty much different, is another year that I look upon today with equal parts anticipation and disdain. My oldest son is beginning second grade. How is that even possible?! My daughter is starting her scholastic career today entering into kindergarten. That’s just not right!
Today it begins…again. And I’m sure pictures will follow. They have to. After all, today is the first day of school.
