Back To School
Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play.
I'm in a brand new grade this year.
What a happy day!
I must say it is a happy day for mom too. I know, I know! Most moms cry and say they are just so sad that summer is over. Not me! I have always loved the start of the school year, which is probably one reason I went to school to be a teacher.
I love the new supplies, getting back to a structured schedule, and the start of extracurricular activities. I also love that television shows are coming off of hiatus, and my favorite holidays are just around the corner. This day, not September 23rd, marks the start of fall for me.
It's a wonderful day!! I am blessed to have a child in 3rd grade and 1st grade this year. I pray they learn a lot, listen to and behave for their teachers, and make wonderful, life-long friends.
