First Day of School

Yesterday morning I woke up with back-to-school jitters. I’ve no idea why – I’m not going back to school and my daughter only starts for one hour this Thursday. Maybe it is because summer officially ends (in my mind) when school starts. Perhaps it is that I wish I were going to school myself in some sort of course OR maybe it is all those days as a child playing teacher that I wish I were a teacher. Whatever the reason, this time of year brings about a certain excitement and anxiety that I cannot explain. As the kids start getting older and going to school for real, none of this 1 hour nonsense, I think I’ll really start to feel sentimental and probably won’t sleep the whole night before.

How do you feel about Fall and the start of school?
