1st day

Today was the first day back to school.  I was expecting a crazy morning getting the boy and the girl into the swing of things again, but it really wasn't too bad.  Even though they won't admit it, I think they were excited to start a new year with their friends.  After all, even though in our minds they are there to become educated, to become good citizens, to be the future leaders of the world, in their minds its a day to renew old friendships and develop new ones.  Here's a shot of Derek reuniting with one of his friends dating back to preschool days.


  1. Perhaps even more important than doing well in school is the ability to form strong, happy friendships. Derek and Ash do that well.

  2. Uh oh... looks like trouble :-) Maybe friends for life!
