What will this school year bring? Will my children have teachers that are stern but caring, focused but creative? Ironic that so many years ago, I would lie awake thinking the same thoughts for what would be my coming academic year. Now, twenty-something years later, these same thoughts are back and magnified for the sake of my children.
To my daughter, I hope that your passion to write continues to grow and your love of reading thrives.
To my son, I hope that you will continue to excel in your language development and that you will learn to fill those notebooks with words that you can spell.
In a few short hours, our alarm will ring. Summer will end and our day will begin. With so many endless possibilities waiting for us this year, I am blessed to be given the chance to experience them with you.
