First Day Of School September 19, 2015

At last, the first day of school in Seattle, Thursday September 17 2015.  The Seattle teachers strike was “settled”.  In the end, the strike delayed the opening of the schools by only a week.  But what a disruptive week for almost everyone in the community.  Anticipation deferred.  Rearrangements galore.  Etc.  But when the first day became a reality,it proved to be a very heart warming and exciting day.
