Today was the first day I did dismissal duty without a jacket on. I wait for this day every year because it means that, fingers crossed, it really is Spring. I wasn’t in a rush to get back inside because I freezing or because my shoes were wet from the snow; I just enjoyed watching the kids chat with one another and waved a warm smile to parents as I sent my students’ home for the day.
I love Spring- it’s my favorite season. Mostly because it feels like the promise of everything new and after a long year and long winter, that feels like something to smile about.
