I always loved the first day of school – the smells, the anticipation – even the nervous little butterflies in my stomach. I remember…
The smell of new pencils, notebooks and textbooks.
A brand-new box of crayons – no colors missing.
The pinch of brand-new shoes.
Feeling wonderful in my first-day of school outfit – including new underwear and socks!
The joy of being just a little bit older (and wiser, I thought) than the previous year.
These are the same feelings I had every year – whether I was starting 3rd grade, 9th grade, my senior year of college or my first year of graduate of school – yes, even the first day outfit including the new underwear!
