1st day of school!
School started this week for our kids. Wow. We now have a child in Jr Hi. (yes, we are that old). One in fourth grade and our youngest in Kindergarten. Quick, where does the word kindergarten come from…? Huh? Got you, didn’t I? It’s German. Yep, ‘kind’ means child and ‘garten’ refers to garden. (Apparently before school young German children played in the garden a lot… OK, I made that last part up. I have no idea.) Anyhow, is there anything sweeter than watching your five year old, with his new backpack get on the bus for the first time with his brother and sister? (You’d have to be a parent to answer that so in case you’re not a parent the answer is no.)
don’t miss the bus, j
