Today is a day of fresh starts for many. Back-to-schoolers hop on the bus ready with excitement to begin a brand new school year. I can still smell the new shoes my Mother bought me. They were Mary-Jane’s with buckles and I just loved them. September is symbolic of starts and new beginnings. Take a moment out of your day to smile at a Teacher, a student, a bus driver or someone you know that is starting a brand new grade.
This is one of my favorite times of year, even if I no longer have to wake a child up for school or see them to the bus stop. I wish every student a year full of learning and making new friends along the way. The yellow school buses are out so slow down, wave hello and remember that September is a time of fresh starts.
