Sunday – The Evening Before School
I walked around the table at least three times before I felt sure everything was in place and said a prayer. School was starting the next morning and it was going to be different.
We weren’t going to hear the familiar sounds of the yellow buses going down our street, the backpacks were going lay empty, and there was no need for cool shoes while hanging out on the playground. Instead, my girls, who are now in 5th and 6th grade would be skipping down the stairs and taking a few steps to their new “classroom” aka, the unused dining room table.
