While we were waiting for middle school tours to begin, No. 1 and I began driving around the City checking out middle schools from the curb. Yep, curb appeal! When No. 1 exclaimed, “I love this one!” I found myself cautioning, “What if this beautiful lady is shallow?" After all, what can we tell about love (and schools) from the outside?
Our blossoming love affair with exteriors reminded me of one of Kate’s earliest posts "School Crushes" (Jan 2008), where she waxes poetically about AFY and admits to driving out of her way to pass AFY on a weekly basis. Déjà vu. There we were, sitting in front of the school at sunset with the windows down and the music blasting, as we imagined life and love inside the school. Who knew that we would stoop so low? We were getting sucked into the vortex, going over to the Dark Side of the school enrollment process.
Is anyone else falling in love?
