pencils     Well, It’s Official!  

After the first day: my son has decided he likes Kindergarten,

and that he will finish grade school,

and go to high school,

and go to college!!!!!

(He had been undecided about college before.)

**  But, as of today, he wants to go to college close by so he can still live with Daddy and me.

That’s fine.

We’re making progress… Yey!
