School Days

Hard to believe that the summer vacation has slipped away so quickly, but welcome back to school for the kids in the Western Nevada County area.  Not everyone is back quite yet, but must have started by today.  And, kudos to our own Paul Haas, who had a nice feature on the first day of school for Kindergarteners at Bell Hill.  Nothing like the excitement of that very first day of “real” school for both the kids and parents.  Funny thing…told Paul that the teacher, Robin McFadden, was a best friend of my daughter, Katie, in kindergarten at Bell Hill School.   Paul had me beat…Robin said he was her fifth grade teacher.   The years do go by!!!
