Every school day I drive Starla to School. Sometime early in the school year I began to sing a song that I call “Going to School.” There are no set words to this song, with the possible exception of the phrase Going to School. I usually customize it to the particular day, perhaps sing about something I see, or something I know that Starla has been thinking about or working on.
I usually sing it very loudly, not with any particular poise or grace. I love singing it to Starla.
Starla may tell me, or appear to not be thrilled, but I know that secretly she loves the song.
