Wherever I look there are little bands of kids dressed in matching uniforms with crests on their clothing and backpacks. They walk in little clumps of navy blue or forest green. The littlest boys and girls wear "smocks" which look like long red dresses. There are dozens of schools around here and you can tell where each kid goes just by looking at them. Ruby's school is the only one I've found with no required uniform, but you can still spot them by their navy blue backpacks. Most mornings I look out my bedroom window and see clumps of Ravenstone kids passing my house and think "Damn! I'm late again."
