Watching the little ones with their back packs waiting for the school bus reminded me of kindergarten when I was young.
Of course back then there were no school busses’ or backpacks. Kindergarten was in it’s infancy and guidelines were still unclear. I was allowed to enroll at age 4. All that was needed was for me to know where I lived.
With twins just a year younger and a new baby mom had her hands full. So I suppose it did give her a break with one less, at least for a few hours.
