The common question on mornings like this is "where did the summer go?" It is the first day of school, and thegrandson is off and running for a day of getting back with old friends, a new teacher and a pretty good outlook for the coming months. We will have to wait and see how long that may last.
As for the summer passing quickly, he had actually reached to point of total boredom. The strange thing is that he essentially has played with two neighbor kids most of the summer - until three days ago, when kids from one street over, started coming over here to play. Why couldn't they have meandered over here weeks ago?
Going back to school on a Monday seems really strange to me, because my kids always started school on a Thursday. This allowed the teachers to organize and set up their classes before the onslaught of students. I haven't figured this out as yet, unless the school system is starting early to get in their "snow days" up front. I'm sure I will get an explanation or theory at some point in time.
This may be a great time to sneak back in bed for a few zzzz's, something I cannot do during the off-school months.
I shall return........later...........
