Friday was the last day of school for my school district. I happened to find myself behind the bus for the middle schoolers on its last trip home.
As I hovered behind it, anxious about all the things I needed to get done before the end of the day, a boy got off. He whipped around the front of the bus and stood in his driveway, watching it leave.
And as it pulled away, he threw his backpack on the ground and started dancing.
