On My Mind and More

Well, sometimes I look at Facebook, and I respond literally to the question: “What’s on your mind?” Today I had a whole slew of answers, some of which I verbalized into the empty room surrounding me. Mostly they were superficial and not predicated on anything too important. Continue reading

1st Grade: First Day 2016

As Jacqueline said to me this morning while tieing her own sneakers, “Well Dad, I guess we are officially first-graders now.” Yes you are. And off to school they go, beginning the 2016-17 school year. Time will again race by, but this moment we enjoy, and capture, only to look back on it and wonder where the time went.

They couldn’t wait to get on the bus. Theodore told me last night, “Dad I am not excited for school, I just can’t stop thinking about it.” This morning he asked my wife and I if they could walk down to the bus on their own after today. We said one, or both of us, will get them on the bus each day, to which he replied, “Maybe in second grade, or at least when we are 8.”

As for today it was Dad, Mom, and the twins all at the bottom of the driveway, waiting for the bus. The rest is history.

1st grade we have each other

The twins are ready to take on First Grade.

Same bus. Same bus driver (they love Kami). Same route. Sometimes new beginnings are easier with some familiarity.

They posed for the picture. Holding hands, well that just happened automatically. At least they have each other.

We Miss You Mrs. Tefft

Tomorrow, another school year begins in Goffstown, NH. Yet, tonight, for the third time in four days, I was stopped in my tracks when I saw the obituary for Mrs. Tefft online. We all should be seeing her tomorrow, standing out front, smiling, and greeting all. Imagine how long the list of accolades and kind words would be if Mrs. Tefft hadn’t been taken so soon. We were some of the fortunate ones that got to feel her impact. We all will miss her here in this community. Continue reading
