First Day of School!   It was so great to have that extra weekend again.   Starting school after Labor Day just makes more sense to me.   I'm sure these next few mornings will be a bit of a jolt for everyone, but in some ways, it will be nice to get back into a routine.  (Although I'm sure I'll be complaining about said routine in about a week).   Welcome to September everyone....
