First Day of Kindergarten!!!

A very special day for me and for Trip and Will... Amidst all the anxiety of a move - the boys also started at a new school - elementary school! Trip is in Kindergarten and is loving it and Will is in a pre-k class in the same school. They are getting used to the new routine every day: up early and breakfast, 'first joke telling' priveledge to the first to buckle up in the car, full days at the school, back home and settling down for early nights. It will take us a while.

Here are the guys again on the second 'first day'. Proud in their little uniforms.

Uh-oh, now looking a little scared walking in!

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.

Poem

We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
