The Deminski kids head back to school
Jack and Mina’s first day. We moved to Hillsborough so this school is brand new to them, which so many of us went through but always sucks. Not knowing a soul, worrying if you’ll find anyone to be friends with, what will be different, etc..
I remember moving in the middle of a school year, which is the worst of the worst, from the Rahway system to the Clark system. Rahway was a poorer town and Clark more affluent, and I never fit in with the attitudes there. Having grown up in Rahway I was also shocked to move to Clark and have not a single black student in the entire school. I missed my friends. On first days of school, taking the pictures and walking them to those tall doors, I miss them still.
