School Time

The first day of school can be scary—new rooms, new teachers, new classmates, new schedules, new rules. So. Much. New. Thankfully, many people have done this before, and, thankfully, many have come through to the other side whole and unscathed. And, lucky for us, some have even written about the experience, knowing how worrisome the days leading up to all that newness can be. So, here's a list of back to school stories, perfect for that night before school read aloud that'll make it all seem, if not exciting, then hopefully a little less scary.
