The beginning of every school year brings hope and excitement and the opportunity for a fresh start. I sent my boys off to third grade this morning with brand new backpacks filled with notebooks and pencils that they'll (hopefully) use to journal and write their thoughts and feelings. I love that they are walking into school with open minds and hearts and meeting their new teachers who will undoubtedly help to shape their future.
I hope all of the children starting the 2017-18 school year have wonderful learning experiences and the opportunity to maybe make a new friend or two. And I also with their moms and dads a great school year too since we're just as invested as our little students are!
