First Day Jitters

   About the only thing I remember about my first day of kindergarten was the dress I wore. I do, however, remember years later how excited and nervous I was starting middle school. That's because we had moved into a new house just weeks earlier - in a new town and a new school district.

I knew no one. Talk about First Day Jitters.

It turns out I had a great year, but I'll never forget the feeling I had waking up that morning, as I write about in my column today.

Our fourth-grade daughter said the butterflies were dancing around in her stomach Wednesday morning, too. There's nothing like the first day of school each year - for kids and parents alike.

How did things go in your household this week? Or perhaps you have a memory to share from your own school days.
