"Today is a wonderful day, for I am going away.
Not to the circus, not to the pool.
Can't you guess, I 'm going to school!"
That is the first verse of a little song I used to teach my first graders every year on the first day of school. I love 5 & 6 year olds! They are so excited about life and so happy to be in school and learn. As a teacher it was always a fun day to greet them with their eager faces shining.
Keep a good thought in your head on Wednesday for Richard. He is such a dear boy and I love him! I love all of you too!
I took a little trip back in time to those first days of school so long ago. I will share them with you!
