School days

It's that time again. The school bell will ring and class will be in session. Children will be sporting their new duds and carrying the latest fashion in back packs. Pencil sharpeners will get a work out. Gee, I miss those days as a parent and former employee. I can remember making a sign for Steph & Nate to hold up under our large oak tree that read " 1st day of 1st Grade" or whatever grade they would be in. They would roll their eyes and say "Oh mom". Thoughts and prayers are with all of my dear friends who are Educators as well as my little student friends and especially my 2 grandson's as they start back to school today. I use to work in a classroom for many years when my kids were growing up and when this time rolls around, I get a little emotional. Have a Great First Day Back to School!
