"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

First day of the 2nd Grade!

He turned 7yrs old in June. That wasn't a huge blow. But *2nd Grade*? That just sounds so old! Where did my little boy go?

He was so very excited to go to school this morning, and he came home all smiles and had a great day! His teacher seems very nice too.

The little one, on the other hand, was very upset when he got up this morning and realized brother was gone. He cried a bit and had his little lip stuck out for a while, then he was ok. Of course he enjoyed the day being the center of attention! :)

Here is my big boy, on his first day of 2nd grade!
