And So It Begins...

The time has come. The boys are in school. Firstborn is entering fourth grade (and, I ask again, how is that even possible?) whilst Secondborn is beginning Kindergarten (ditto). The sequence with Firstborn has, so far, been progressively less stressful for the beginning of each school year. This year, even with the addition of Secondborn, we made it through fairly efficiently: we got out the door on time, and the only thing we forgot was Secondborn's water bottle.

There was, of course, the obligatory Nobody Wants To Wake Up response:

Then there was breakfast:

Then we got everybody ready and out the door. We dropped Firstborn off first, but unfortunately those pictures are on the Beautiful Woman's camera. I'll try to add them later, once I get copies.

Then we went to Secondborn's school. We'd hoped to have both boys in the same school, but it didn't quite work out; and it may be better this way, as Secondborn will not be in his brother's shadow.

Big boy, bigger hallway.
That's a stuffed hammerhead shark that he's holding.

Sitting in the Kindergarten line:


  1. Enjoy! Before you know it they will be graduating from high school. It seems like a long way off, but the years click by quickly. Just tonight, I watched my oldest granddaughter play 9th grade volleyball. Where'd all the years go? :)

    You're a great Dad, my friend.

    1. Well, you know what they say: time flies when you're on the run!
