My kids are both out of school now, but we all recall the excitement and happy energy of many a first-day-back. From my own childhood, I have only one clear memory of a first day of school. It was the year my family moved from California to Argentina for my dad's sabbatical year. At age 11, I, along with my brother and sister were deposited by our mom at our new school where not a single soul spoke English. It was "sink-or-swim", and we all eventually got the hang of things, including wearing the all-white uniforms.
|We looked just like these children. How did we keep them so white??|
