Five Good Things About (Traditional) School Being Back in Session

10 Sep

School’s in for fa-all.  School’s in for fa-all.  It’s the end of the first week of school for most of the children of the tundra.

1.) Both kids and teachers are off the streets.

2.) The mall and parks are significantly less congested.  I no longer cringe when I need to duck into a 7-11 during school hours.  

3.) While the quality is variable, some kids return to at least receiving two meals per day.

4.) The parade of kids marching down my street, in their crispy new clothes and their torso-sized backpacks is pretty cute.

5.) My mom friends are breathing a bit easier and getting a (small, but much-deserved) break.
