Back to School

Well, this morning is "back to school" for me. Since I work most of the summer, it seems kind of weird that starting back is any kind of event at all, but it still is. The beginning of school marks a more steady routine and homework.

For the first time in about 21 years, I did no back-to-school shopping. Every year since Jana started preschool, there has been some sort of trip to buy fabric or new clothes or new shoes. But, with both girls now married and working, there was no shopping trip. That, in itself, felt as weird as anything ---- almost like I was forgetting something. So, as a last minute gesture, yesterday afternoon I bought a new shirt on sale for myself, a few notebooks and pens to organize my caseload and I'm now ready to go.

Happy Back To School.

I teach preschool - we started back this week.

My son is in his last year of high school -- I know what you mean about no back to school shopping. Kind of sad really!
