It is coming close to back to school time where I live. I have two pre-schoolers and four older kids. My wife and I went to enroll the two middle boys in school and I took the little ones out to the playground. My oldest son reminded me that when he was afraid of the school that we had gone out to the play ground the week before school and hidden several smiley face stickers under the swings and on a stump or two just outside the fence and a few other places. I told him that he wasn’t alone there because he could always look for one of those stickers as a sign to remember the fun we had playing and know that I loved him.
Sadly we didn’t find any stickers left after the five or so years since we had placed them, but he remembered where they had been. It would have been a nice close to this story. We do still have one of the stickers from that sheet on my tool box–visible in the garage everyday.
Does anyone else have a pleasant thought about back to school?
