Thankfully, Anna likes her new school. She likes going to school, she likes finding monkey tatoos on her cafeteria tray, and she likes having Art every Tuesday and Music every Friday. The school is at the end of our street, a two-minute walk from the door, which is great when it’s 7:45, you’re half-dressed and coffee is dribbling down your chin. The walk to school is my favorite part of the morning because that’s when our entire street empties out and about 200 kids with their parents schelp down our block to the elementary school’s open doors. I grew up in the sticks and we always had to bus it. Anna’s commute to school has all the makings of a parade–just add balloons and trumpets.
