Not the first day back at school!

And here’s how I started the year last year:

Without a question they are undeniably cute. Admittedly, this wasn’t on the first day – it was about Day 4, by which time they would have stopped wailing, had they been wailers – but this class weren’t! They just came and enjoyed school!
But anyway, as I was enjoying the snorkeling on the islands today, it crossed my mind that I was missing the first day of school. And you know what? I didn’t miss it in the least! What I missed most was the hilarity when I get home on the first day of school, and my dog spends 10 minutes sniffing my legs, which I’m assuming is because the new babies I teach all hang around at that height!
