Oh how I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils lined up neatly on the desks. I love seeing the excitement of all the kids entering the classroom for the first day and scanning for their desks and who they will sit next to. I love hearing the laughter of kids laughing with nervousness of meeting their new teacher. I love the feel of new clothes, a little rough, but so fun to wear. I love taste of the peanut butter on the knife that I get to lick after making sandwiches for school lunch.
I also love the smell of a clean house that no one followed me around making dirty the instant I got it clean. I love seeing my sweet girl going to school so grown up through the tears in my eyes! I love hearing not a sound when I went outside, the neighborhood was empty. I love the feel of new clothes, yes, I got a new back to school outfit too! I love the taste of Dr. Pepper as I sit with my feet up relaxing at 10 in the morning.
I can't wait to smell the cookies cooking for an after to school snack. I can't wait to see the smile my little school lover will have as she returns home from school. I can't wait to hear my little one as she comes home and describes all that happened today at school. I can't wait to feel the giant hug I will surely get when my little one runs in the door after the first day of school. I can't wait to taste the cookies that we will eat together while listening to all the fun adventures today held.
(I also can't wait for Wednesday when I get to experience all of this again as I send Tessa off to her first day of school. She is so excited too!)
I LOVE SCHOOL!!
