No, it was not my first day of school, but, my kids’. As kids grow older, the first day of school is not anxious and exciting as it used to be. This morning, however, I was reminded how big a deal it used to be. As I was leaving my house to go to gym, I stopped my car as I saw a yellow school bus pulling off to load kids. Then, I saw a group parents with their digital camera and videocamera to capture the precious moment of the “first day” of school. They were parents who are sending off their kids to their 1st grade classroom. Waving, waving, and more waving. Dads were busy documenting the moment. By the time I realized I should have pulled out my iPhone to capture that lovely scene, the action was already over. So, picture the moment in your own mind. It is already a lovely morning.
