Tomorrow is a very odd day for me. My oldest son Zack has his first day of school. I have fleeting memories of my first school. A big building with linoleum tile floors, cinder block walls and lots of challenges :). I also have a vague memory of what might be my first trip to school. Driving up in the parking lot behind Moore school with the oak trees towering above and the concrete walkway that led to the back of the institutional looking building.
So far Zack seems to be taking it in stride. Today he showed his first sign of worry. Carrie asked him if he was excited about school tomorrow. He responded “I am a little scared.”. When asked why he was scared his answer was that he was afraid he would not be able to buckle himself on the school bus :). We assured him that school buses did not have seat belts. Odd isn’t it? Zack called us on that too :)
