School is starting up this week and as always it gives me a bout of nostalgia.
It might sound a little nerdy, but I miss back-to-school shopping: getting a new book bag, the smell of a new box of crayons, organizing binders (with the thought, <<I’m going to be really organized this year>>, and that only lasts a week…). And then there’s that first day of school, you’ve got butterflies in your stomach as you run through a little mental checklist: book bag, notebook, pencils, lunchbox and your mom starts taking a million pictures, documenting the beginning of yet another year.
I miss those butterflies–anticipation of a new year, new friends, new things to learn and new adventures. So, to all you back-to-schoolers, be you 4 years old or 40 years old, Good luck this year, I hope it’s a good one and if you need some help I’ll be here!
