Tonight was “Back to School Night” for the kids, where you take your kid(s) to school, find their new teacher(s) and classroom(s), and get them “acclimated” as best you can. Susan said she doesn’t remember having Back to School nights as a kid. I vaguely remember but it seems like we always went during the day. Maybe back when we went to school they were open both during the day and at night. I don’t remember. Mom?
In a moment of foreshadowing that parallels anything the great classic authors ever penned, the first person Morgan met was the new principal. For a moment, their eyes locked. I’m still not sure who was more afraid of whom, but I am sure that they will meet again.
Morgan’s teacher was soft-spoken and calm; Mason’s was bubbly, giddy, and told Mason she “lived for smiles” as she took his picture with her digital camera. Essentially they were exactly what you would want in Pre-K and second grade teachers. Mason saw some old friends and already started making some new ones. Someday, Mason will be remembered by his teachers as the smart and funny kid.
Morgan will be remembered as the leader of the rebellion …
