Back to School

As the last of the summer burns away, a familiar sound is beginning to fill the air.

“Mom, I don’t wanna go to school”..That was from my neighborhood..

I chuckled to myself and shook my head as I walked passed the forlorn soon-to-be student last Friday. I almost stopped and asked the boy, who looked to be in fifth- or sixth-grade, why he did not want to school.

When I was his age, this was my favorite time of year. The stores were adorned the bright colors of the season. Folders, rulers, glue, notebooks. They all meant that school would soon be back in session.


At the beginning of summer I would count down the minutes as school came to a close. But the excitement never lasted that long for me. Detective novels and short story books filled my summers. But no matter how interesting the selection, they just didn’t do enough to keep me intrigued.
