my first day of school

Extracts from this document...


The sweet almost forgotten taste of bubblegum candy, the noisy cluster before the morning assembly, the sleepy eyes and the stifled yawns followed by the shrill blast of the school bell is what comes to mind most when I think of the word school. Before u all get up and leave; this isn't one of those weak knees, trembling from head to toes four year olds first day of school stories. Even thought we have all been through that and understand it, I must admit it kind of losses its melodrama after one has been to 10 different schools in the first two years.
