As the bustle of the school year gears up toward its grand, heated finale of forgotten shoes, overflowing knapsacks and armfuls of artwork heading homeward the mind skips backward to September; the last lazy days of summer to be savoured, crammed full of friends and late nights; the fresh school clothes waiting to be put on, lunchbags as yet unsquashed, unsmelly, thermoses still in their places.

I love the first morning, walking and gathering neighbourhood kids like a snowball until at the last corner we are a gaggle of parents and kids catching up - from last week, last night or all of summer in a few steps - before jumping in and joining the crowd in the playground.
