So school is starting, some are already back at it. Looks like it will be in person for most, if not all. I think that is good but I know there are a few risks. Teachers, parents and students will all have to deal with another new normal (I am tired of that phrase aren’t you?)
Everyone is hoping it will be as much like the old normal as possible. We have had enough disruption even if you don’t have kids or don’t have kids at home anymore you felt it.
I am sending one away to school later this month. She will go to another city and live there for 10 months. This is her third year so it is more familiar than the first time. But still, she is living in another city while she goes to school, that adds another layer to the season for us.
Back to school is a unique time on the family calendar and a unique time for everyone else too. It seems people who haven’t attended school in years still want to reminisce about what it was like when they went to school or how someone in their family is starting a new grade or school.
