Yes, the first day. It is upon us. For the past three days, it has felt like the clock has been counting down instead of forward, in an ominous, very loud and obnoxious way. And here we are, today.
Does anyone else find it disturbing how abruptly the school year starts? Like how one day we are here, looking like this…
And the next we are here, looking like this:
Shouldn’t there be some thing of some sort to mark the change? A fireworks show and marching band to send them all off in their brand new shoes? A month of half days followed by a month of 3/4 days to ease in slowly? A superintendent who shows up and gives us all a hard slap in the face the day before?
But no. One day it’s this:
The next, that.
And there they go.
And here I am.
