Today is Back to School for everyone, which means the sight of new backpacks, the smell of new pencils, erasers; newness in general. The world feels light and easy on the first day of school; everything is neat and orderly; and it seems as if nothing could mess up the school year. Ah, if only life were like that!
In the first grade, safety gear is a must. You walk down the street as a thousand tiny yellow Vs pass you by, giggling, smiling, running, shouting. The little kids make school-going cheerful like nothing else can!
