Another first day of school


Boy do these days come around fast. It seems like yesterday that Jack was going to school for the very first time. I can remember that day vividly, though in what seems like the blink of an eye, here we are starting fourth grade already. Fourth grade means a change of school for Jack, and I’m pleased to report that he’s settling in to his new surroundings quite nicely. There’s a big adjustment to be made, with an increase in homework, and lots of after-school activity choices to be made. Life’s getting just a tad more complicated for Jack these days, but what better way to send him off to school than a big hug from the O-Dog!

  1. School can be a big adjustment alright! I love the Lab! Labs are my favorite kind of dog… Jack looks like the kind of boy that would fit in. School Days; these memories tend to last all our lives! Very exciting for a young boy/girl…

  2. Oliver has a rather sad look on his face…perhaos he was aware of Jack’s departure that day! Speaking of first days of school, I recall a plethora of those with our once, young children. Bittersweet, but essential.

      Michael… Oliver always looks either sad, serious, or happy… hard to read him sometimes, but he is usually full of expression.

I'd love to hear from you...
