School days, school days
Dear and golden rule days
Reading and writing and arithmetic
I'm not sure what words actually come next because, by this point in the song, my brother and I were buried under our covers and screaming, "Da-ad! Sto-o-p!" Looking back, I think that my father took great pride in singing this and making us squirm just a little!
This morning is our angels first day of school and time for us to begin what will soon become our family's first day traditions. So, before we grab the school bucket or eat dad's celebration pancakes (more on these in upcoming blogs), I, too, will wake up our sleeping angel by singing that same tired old song, "School days, school days....". Then, maybe, as I wait for the grumpy screams from under the covers, I will crack a little smile!
