Today was the first day of school.
When I walked outside to my car this morning it even smelled like the first day of school. Can you remember what that smells like? My husband thinks I'm a little strange when out of the blue I'll say, "It smells like school outside."
The air was a little cooler...a little crisper. Like fall wasn't too far away. (Even though it is :)
Everyone was in new clothes.
The kids shoes were bright with no scuff marks.
Their shirts and pants had newly bought creases in them still.
As the kids got off the bus it wasn't the usual yelling and screaming.
They were quieter, anticipating the new school year...if their teacher was going to be nice, if they would see their friends from last year.
Everyone is on their best behavior.
This may change tomorrow, but I love holding onto what the first day of school is..
It's so full of nostalgia, opportunity and promise.
Anything can happen.
