The process of going back to school isn't just a matter of getting into my car, sitting in traffic, pulling into the parking lot, and walking onto campus. There is, of course, a stop for coffee somewhere along the way.
Okay, maybe there's even more to it than that.JBS documents my first day and first week back to school. It's been a monumental one, what with my daughter, a senior (!), attending her last first day of school. This year I am also teaching a bunch of new classes, one of which (as mentioned in an earlier post) focuses on folklore and mythology. The August JBS Antiquarian kit turned out to be a serendipitous match for this page, since it includes folk-tale-themed elements, among other vintage finds.
Here's to the year ahead. It is going to be a memorable one.
