Don’t you love the first few days of school? When I was a kid, I liked going back to school. It meant new clothes, new books (yeah, I’m weird), new smelling classrooms (even though I went to the same school from 2nd-12th grade, they always smelled like fresh paint), and new opportunities.
Now, as a professor, I like the first day of school because it means new thoughts on new subjects. It means new opportunities to share with a new group of students and to hear fresh ideas about the topics that will one day help them minister to young people in their communities.
It’s killing me not being in Mexico for the first classes this year. Huberto is teaching Principles of Youth Ministry to the freshman, and I got a report from him about the first day of classes. He tells me that the group is very involved in the class. I’m not sure what that means, but I’m hoping it turns out to be a good thing.
Well, in order to get by without being there this first week of school I’ve been watching this hilarious video that I saw. Maybe it will help you get through the first week of school, too.
