Reading back through those entries, I'm noticing a trend: I tend to be sick and/or exhausted at this time of year. I seem to remember promising myself, somewhere around this time last year, that I'd put in for a week of vacation during the first week of school. In fact, I seem to remember making myself that promise several years in a row, and the forgetting about it every time.
Anyway, this year? Mellow. Firstborn woke himself up, so he was already up and about:
He also got himself dressed. My wife is starting her very first semester as a full-time college professor (she's been an adjunct for years), so once again she and Secondborn were able to come along and see Firstborn off.
Firstborn likes to walk on top of high things.
I don't know where he gets it from.
It's very mysterious.
Secondborn followed along; as far as I can tell, he's actually disappointed that he didn't get to start school this year.
We took the obligatory In Front Of The School shot:
...And then did one just like it with Secondborn:
And then the Beautiful Woman went off to drop Secondborn at his preschool/day care thing, and I went back home to be massively sick. Which, again, seems to be par for the course for this time of year.
