Labor Day is just around the corner heralding what most of us consider the beginning of fall no matter what the calendar or the weather say. Lots of children are already in school and the rest will begin this week. Although I no longer teach or even have children in school, it always make me a little nostalgic. I've been thinking this weekend...Do you remember....?
When the most important decision you had to make was what to wear on the first day of school?
When you thought you would die if your best friends weren't in your homeroom?
When you thought you'd be friends forever?
When you were shocked to find out your teacher had a first name besides Mrs.? When you thought your teacher was older than dirt...and she was younger than you are now?
When your station in life was determined by the size of your box of crayons?
When your biggest worry was who you would sit with at lunch?
When the school paste smelled like peppermint and the halls smelled like fresh wax?
When you could figure out right from wrong by looking for the red marks on your paper?
