They're ba-a-ack!

Today was the first full day of school at the Academy. Hundreds and hundreds of students -- and almost as many parents -- started arriving early this morning. Plenty of new uniforms and fresh haircuts were in evidence.

This first day's final dismissal bell has rung, and everything went without a hitch. Only one student was sick during Mass, and just a single pre-K student let out a chorus of "I want my Mommy!" The teachers are all still smiling, and I heard lots of students saying to parents, "Wait till you see what I have for homework!"

There are certain things that tell me all's right with the world. Kids back at school is one of 'em.
