In just a few short weeks, my oldest son (FC#1) starts school. This marks the start of many new and exciting events, and many stressful and arduous, too. The worst thing is that this September to September merry-go-round ain’t gonna stop now until, god, around 2031. “Back to School” this year, for us, is simply “To School”. For the first time, I am joining parents up and down the country in such joyful activities as stationery-buying (fun!), uniform-trying-on (much less fun), and…dun dun dunnnn…the buying of school shoes.
