Both kids are excited about it.  Erin is super excited.  Evan is headed to the high school and is driving himself for the first time.  The high school parking lot is the most scary place on the planet in terms of driving so I’m glad we bought him a cheap car.

James Lileks says this about school starting:

“You never shake that back-to-school feeling. Even the years between school and kids of your own, the turning of the leaves brings back the sense of industriousness and new situations. For most adults the emotion dims and dulls, as they all do, but sometimes you catch it full and bright… The notebooks were empty, the folders pristine, the pencils perfect. Anticipation, sure, but jitters as well..”

That sums it up for me.  I remember the feeling well.
