It's the first day of school here in Seattle. You can't tell from this photo, but the crowd at our bus stop is even bigger than last year's, flush with this year's crop of kindergarteners, younger siblings and other new students. There's a mix of apprehension and anticipation in the air.
Caitlyn, of course, is all anticipation.
And so it begins: old patterns, new routine, settling in, stepping out. Fall.
