First Day

Yet another first day of school.

A first day of getting to know a new teacher.

Getting to know new routines.

Seeing new or old faces.

Reconnecting with last year’s friends.

New clothes.

New smiles (with two less teeth this time around).

Last year of elementary.

First year of homework.

A new desk,
new chair.

New books and the smell of a freshly cleaned school.

Hope, promise, excitement.

A year of untold possibilities and curiosity awaits.

Have a wonderful first day of school.
