Wellesley Parents. . . The Countdown Begins

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

2 weeks……2 weeks…………2 weeks…….2 weeks………. UNTIL THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL !!

Have you heard it?  The clock is ticking!

Exactly 2 weeks from Tuesday, you’ll hear even more.   There will be the frantic search; cabinets and cupboards being opened and closed.  Drawers closed in frustration.  Doors slammed.

Clothes will be taken from the closet.  Some will land on the floor.  Missing shoes will be retrieved.

Breakfast will remain untouched in some instances.  Hairdryers will be humming.  iPods will be removed from the bedroom, family room, car, …and other sundry places.

Running feet will be heard…out the front door.  Car doors will be slammed; buses will be waiting.

Moms and Dads will start their engines.  And they’ll all be headed to the biggest gathering of friends since summer began.

That’s right!  You guessed it!

In 2 weeks,  September 2, 2008** to be exact, the kids go back to school!!!

Wellesley Schools open their doors to welcome back their students in just 2 weeks.

For some, it will be the end of vacation; and for others,. . .  it will be the beginning!
