As I drove to work this morning I was stuck behind multiple buses and saw many kids waiting at the end of their driveways for the bus to come. It brought back so many memories of growing up on the farm and the first day of school.
I can picture it now… The night before I set out my new school clothes that Mom and Pa bought me and made sure all the new school supplies was in my backpack. (Gel pens were popular when I was younger and had to have every color) I could never sleep the night before school starting, I was way too excited!
Me and my younger sister would get up the next morning and mom would have a big pot of CoCo Wheats made. We would eat breakfast and then head outside to the pine tree to take our “First Day of School” picture. Then Mom and Pa would watch us walk down to the to the end of the driveway and wait for the bus. We were always the first ones on bus in the morning and the last ones off the bus in the evenings.
Oh the joys of the first day of school!
What was your first day of school like?!
