One of Boise's historic elementary schools, built in 1913. They spent the past year totally refurbishing the building and landscaping, and now it's ready for students, who will be coming through the doors tomorrow morning.
I love the detail around the doorway.
School reminds me of the smells of floor polish, old wood, disinfectant, and sweaty kids (we didn't have A/C until the new addition was built). Classes began in mid-August in the Midwest. You knew your carefree summer days were numbered when the cicadas began their buzzing songs in the evenings.
