I am now a parent of grade school kids. My babies are growing up! Before long, I will be a parent of tweens, and then teens ...
To commemorate their first day in first grade, I took a few pictures of the kids holding this piece of paper! One of my friends I did this, and to do the same thing every year as they move up the school grades.
At the end of the school day, the verdict from Duncan, "School was awesome!" That's a good start, eh! Denice was pleased that she did not get any time-out. My response to that was, "No, you do not want any time-outs!"
This is only the first week, and there are many more weeks to go! I hope the rest of the year will stay as promising as the first day! One can only hope.

Galt, California 2009
This cat of ours is so playful that she will jump and cling to your legs if you happen to walk by. Actually she lies in wait for you and then jumps on you!
One morning she jumped on Duncan and her claws scratched his back, lightly actually, but Duncan was so shocked by it that he cried. With fingers wagging at the cat, and through his tears, he cried,
"You're a very, very bad kitty! Very bad kitty! No dinner for you tonight!"
Boo hoo hoo. My goodness from the intensity of the crying you would have thought it was a major, major scratch!
