Old Friends

Here's MY back-to-school photo. I had my first school visit of the new school year today, and it was with an old friend, Ms. Caroline Goddard. I knew I was visiting her new school, but I didn't know her new role. 
"Are you the reading specialist? The librarian?" I asked. 
"No, I'm the principal!"
How amazing is that?! 
And this former reading teacher worked it out that every single student received a free book! (And yes, I signed all 650+ books!)
I pointed out to Caroline that we have known each other for longer than any of her students have existed.
Also—how appropriate that the mascot at Ms. Goddard's school is a rocket?!
(When you grow up in Worcester, MA like I did, you learn a lot about Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocketry. His childhood home was five house up from the house I grew up in.)
