Watching Brooke & Courtney board the bus yesterday brought back a lot of memories of our own children as they started that first day of school.
Brooke, 2nd grade, looked after her little sister, Courtney, who started kindergarten.
Later that day, Courtney and I picked up Brooke from school. They both reported having a great first day.
Hope the whole year is great for them.
It all also reminded me of my teaching days when on that first day I'd greet a lot of nervous students.
Days like that are part of the things I continue to miss even after 7 years of retirement but I'm happy to report I've moved on to equally exciting endeavors.
All of which takes me to my favorite piece of advice for anyone anywhere: stay calm and carry on.
