  90. Everyone knows how PROUD I am of my Chazman, always but one the first day of school last year when his teacher from the year before saw us, she walked up and hugged us and said that she hoped that her whole class was like Chaz. Well behaved, a true joy and one that loved to learn. Ohhhh, that did this momma even more proud.

  91. The day I turned 13 was also the first day of 8th grade. While not exactly where you wanted to spend your birthday it was a pretty good day. I remember the outfit I wore (I wouldn’t wear it now but I thought I was cool then). I remember that there was a cake at school for me and balloons and I remember going out to dinner with my family.

  92. I always loved getting the brand new school supplies, clothes & shoes! LOL

  93. The one that is the most memorable to me right now is when I got my certificate in the mail stating that I made the deans list. The next best was the first day of school every year.

  101. My favorite back to school memory would have to be from the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year, when I took my daughter for her 3rd grade open house. My daughter was absolutely ecstatic to find that her FAVORITE teacher in the school was going to be HER third grade teacher. She’s generally pretty happy about starting a new school year, but for third grade, she was overjoyed, and THAT makes for a happy mommy!

    • This is a fantastic memory. My daughter is starting third grade this year also. We register tomorrow and hoping for a particular teacher. It’s beautiful anyway you slice it!
