A New School Year Begins in the Hudson Valley
A Formal Education is a Privilege and a Joy
Excitement is in the air as the summer comes to an end. Schools open their doors and a new year begins. Local children are torn between giving up their freedom of the summer and getting back to hard work. Many are anxious to return to friends and familiar faces after a long summer, but with that excitement comes the apprehension of a new year and new challenges. A formal education is a privilege and a joy. Somehow it seems to be appreciated more after the fact. Funny how that works.
I remember when I was a little girl being told that the years spent learning would be the best years of my life. Well, that is only partially true. Learning never stops. I remember the studying and the getting up early and teachers I didn’t like. I remember hating English grammar, but enjoying Greek Mythology. I remember the good things and the bad things. I have forgotten more details than I care to admit. In between all of that, there were some of the best days of my life. More importantly, it is good to remember that learning never stops. Stepping out of the box and trying new things is an adventure. I have so much more to learn.
I love the message of this video!! School is cool.
As the days grow shorter and the school buses return to the roads, I am reminded of when my girls were little and headed off to school. There days of fun, and days of tears but together we learned so many things, individually and as a family. My girls continue to learn and teach me every day. I wish all the new students a day to remember and much success. Happy First Day of School!! The best is yet to come.
