School Days (Again)

School Days are here again for grandson Bobby as so many other children after summer fun. According to his mom, Bobby was looking forward to entering 3rd grade.

His mom sent us a list of school supplies a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time shopping for everything on the list: notebooks, pencils, erasers, stapler, highlighters, crayons, scissors, folders. Hint: it's a lot easier and way less costly buying supplies for a 3rd grader than a high school or college student! (We're saving now for that time.)


On our return home from our Cape Cod anniversary weekend, we made a quick stop in RI and rendezvoused at a Dunkin Donuts near the grandkid's home (this was just before starting South Beach). Of course, Granddaughter Ellie had to check everything out, but she doesn't enter pre-school until next fall, so no supplies for her.

A happy pair posing together — Bobby and grandpa Grenville.

This serious moment for both grandkids is a definite rarity. 

Vote Today if there's a primary election in your town. We have one here in Nashua to narrow down the mayoral field from 6 to 2 candidates (which might be slightly less than the GOP field of presidential candidates). Still this is a sharp contrast to the small VA Eastern Shore town we formerly lived in. There sometimes only 1 (or no one) ran for town mayor and a write-in candidate could and did win on election day.

I take e non-school age grands out and get some art supplies just for fun. This year it was picking out some good books.

I like the serious photos of both our beautiful grand kids... and so true on the difference in supplies when they are older.

I can honestly say that I do not miss the days of school shopping. But I do miss the anticipation I felt when I was a child. I liked school and always looked forward to a new year.

They do grow quickly. Sometimes too quickly, it seems.

First day of school here, too. Can't believe I got suckered into teaching again. sigh. But it is at the college, so it won't be too bad. Give me a chance to use up old supplies I hadn't managed to throw out yet...
Good luck to Bobby! My, 3rd grade!
I remember him in a stroller!
