It's Back to School!

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 8/25/2008 No comments
Around the city, 130,000 kids are heading back to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. I had to go out this morning to run a quick errand and back-to-school was in the air. Kids standing at bus stops. Buses slowing up traffic. I saw a mother kneeling at a bus stop with her daughter who had to be about six years old--it was so adorable. I remember what it was like for the first day of school.

I woke up around 3:30 this morning and was not able to go back to sleep. It's as if my internal clock knew it was the first day of school. Never mind the fact that I've been out of school for years. But that's how I would be as a kid, restless the night before school started back. In one sense I would dread the end of summer, but in another I would be excited to go back. Excited to be wearing my new "school clothes." Excited to see the friends I hadn't seen all summer. Excited to see what girls would be in my class. Man Law (or maybe that's Boy Law).

Hey kids, enjoy this memorable time in your lives. You'll never experience anything else like it.
