School Flashbacks

Ande had his first day of preschool this week.
He was excited, and I was excited for him.
So far, he loves it.
On the way back home, after dropping him off, I started to remember some of the things I loved about my school days…
From the He-Man swing set, dress-up closet, and glockenspiels in preschool to the school lunches in the cafeteria in middle and high school.Β 
My dad fixed our lunches every single day, from Kindergarten all the way until I could go off campus for lunch in high school.
The best days were the days I opened up my little brown paper bag to find a lunch-able and a Dr. Pepper.
*This is the point in my “remembering” where I started craving a pizza lunch-able, stopped at the grocery store to buy some, and made the boys eat them with me for lunch. Β Probably the weirdest pregnancy craving I’ve had so far. They didn’t really appreciate the goodness of the lunch-able. Maybe it’s because they actually aren’t that good? Who cares, I still love em.*
There were a lot of things that traumatized me about school (like the girl who’s face was burned in a fire, and any bad grade I ever got), but overall I have some great memories.
I hope that as Ande starts going to school that he will be able to make the same kind of memories as I did.
Most of all, I hope he will make friends in school like I did.Β 
I can’t believe he is getting so old, but I can’t wait to see what great things he accomplishes as he grows.
