Today is the first day of school. It’s not just the kids who are nervous, the teachers are too! I am starting my mornings in a new grade with a new teacher, and know there will be a “learning curve” until we get into a routine with each other. I am looking forward to seeing my students from last year’s first grade who will not be n my 2nd grade class. Changes, but with some old familiar comforts.
Here I am with my brother and sister on the first day of school way back in 1967. I remember insisting on wearing that dress even though it was corduroy and the weather was too hot. My mother gave up on arguing with me and relented. She actually made that dress, and the dress my sister is wearing, with matching kerchief! Hard to believe it was 50 years ago!
