I have always loved the back-to-school season. There is something about the hint of fall in the air, new school supplies and school clothes, the idea of a fresh start that just gets me every time. It has been many years since I was a student, but now, finally, this year I have a child old enough to go “back to school” for the first time.
Today was Princess’ first day of pre-K. She picked her own outfit (her favorite “zebra-ina” dress, as my husband calls it), was up and dressed before I was this morning, and I watched as my suddenly-very-grown up little girl marched into her classroom, sat down at a table, and got to work with barely a second glance back at me.
