Off to school
Did you feel like this on Tuesday?
Were you ready?
Girl of the House was actually well prepared with her backpack of school supplies and her soccer bag.
The stressful "what to wear" decision of the day was made for her, simplifying things significantly. She was a Web Leader, one of a group of kids chosen to provide help to the incoming sixth graders. All of the Web kids needed to wear the red "Web" t-shirt.
Wouldn't that be a great idea? If everyone had to wear the provided clothing for the first day or two of school? I think there is too much stress and importance applied to the choice of clothing for the first day of school.
Wait, I think I'm advocating school uniforms? Now I'll have to contemplate that...
