Today was the first day of school for Philly public schools.
Fortunately, we managed to get our daughter off to school without a hitch. Her very, very best friend from last year isn't in the same class but she is, nonetheless, really happy.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when she came home. When I asked how school was, she said, "GREAT!"
She also proceeded to advise - at around 7:00 p.m. - that she needed a certain number of school supplies by the morning. Needless to say, that's not going to happen.
