Anyone have any first day traditions? I went back to work today for year 20. This morning I put on my Chanel No. 5 just like I've done every year since my first year of teaching. That smell reminds me of my first grade teacher, so that smell makes me have happy thoughts about school. I'm such a sap. It's not a scent I wear often, but it's the one that I have to have to start my school year.
