Happy Monday! It’s the last day of September — originally, I wasn’t ready for summer to end, but now I’m looking forward to fall.
In her latest column, Alyssa reflects on the back-to-school season. She remembers her first day of middle school and all the emotions that went along with it: excitement, nerves, and anticipation, among others. Imagine her surprise when the principal sent Alyssa home because she stank! Apparently, a baby skunk had taken up residence beneath the ramp outside her house. The skunk sprayed her each time she used it!
I laughed out loud when I read that. Talk about a memorable first day of middle school! Alyssa says that as humorous as it was, the whole ordeal taught her to find humor in all of life’s challenges.
