"Twas the Night Before School Started

On this day before school starts, I thought I would share a little poem. Believe me, it will be difficult for Mrs. Hayes to sleep tonight as well. 

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow. It's going to be a great day! :) 


'Twas the Night Before School Started

Author Unknown

'Twas the night before school started, 

when all through the town, 

The parents were cheering.

It was a riotous sound!

By eight, kids were washed

And tucked into bed...

When memories of homework

Filled them with dread.


New pencil, new folders, new notebooks, too!

New teacher, new friends...

Their anxiety grew!

The parents just giggled when

They learned of this fright

And shouted upstairs--

"Go to bed! It's a school night!"
