Friday, Lucia "Luci" Smith, 5, of Lebanon, along with hundreds of other youngsters, will begin her first day of school.
She's going to be in Pam Mattingly's kindergarten class at Lebanon Elementary School. But until then, she'll enjoy her last few days of summer.
She fidgets on the couch, clutching her mother's shirt tightly as she whispers into her ear. In her other hand, she holds a set of car keys, which she twirls between her fingers.
