Grandsons in the morning before school….
“but I don’t want you to go”
“I’m sorry buddy, but I have to go to school”
“because I have to learn”
“about your letters and the alphabet?”
…meanwhile… an hour away on the other side of town….
another grandson leaves for his very first day of Kindergarten…
Oh, the joy! The expectation! The thrill of it all! He gets to ride the big bus with no seat belts! Could there possibly be anything better??
Not likely. At least not for him on this particular day.
We come. We go. From the day of birth until the day we leave this earth.
Sometimes we laugh… or cry… or get all crazy in the face.
But come and go we do.
As these three start their journey, I hope they will always…
…run happy to the bus, even if they don’t know what to expect
…be excited to learn, even when it is hard
…know they are loved, even when they doubt
…remember the way home, especially when they’re grown
…be sweet to their little sisters… yeah, this might be unrealistic
…hug their mamas
And speaking of mamas… they have the best of the best. Thanks for sharing your photos, my dears.
