Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Dish is asking for pathetic and sad ‘back to school’ pictures. Which gives me a welcome excuse to re-publish this from last year. Nothing sad here. (The pix and the text are from the original post in September 2009.)
Don’t know quite how this happened. His Mom came to work for me at the theatre a few years before I retired and he was a wee wee wee thing. And then he walked. And then he talked. And then he spelled out letters and read to us from his books. And then he began to write the letters himself and make them into words that got a little bit bigger and a little bit longer every time. And he came to dinner last night, proud proud proud to be in ‘really’ school.Logan got a new lunch bag for his first day of Kindergarten.
UPDATE: Just had an email from Logan’s mom about his first day in FIRST Grade. “Oh, what a wet day the first day was. His had to be dropped off so that he wouldn’t be dripping wet in class. Sad for me, fun for him. I didn’t walk him to class for the first time ever. Man, why do Band-Aids always get ripped off of me. It still hurts no matter what they say.”
