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.

  1. They look so happy. I love the first day of school. I love my freshly scrubbed babies looking much less like babies but mine nonetheless. Thank you for sharing!

  2. So excited to see you and the pic of your kids at SOL Tuesday. I’ve enjoyed many first day pics on FB recently. “A year of untold possibilities and curiosity…” such is the promise every fall. I still feel the new beginning bug even though I’m no longer teaching.
