First Day of School

T and R started their new school year on Tuesday. They're going to a new school this year -- a charter school that emphasises the three R's. They weren't too sure about going to a new school, but they like it okay now. There is a pretty strict dress code - plain pants (black, navy, brown, gray, tan) and plain shirts with collars (no stripes or prints) and belts. Here they are getting ready for their first day.

They both chose to wear blue shirts on the first day, but they could have picked any color. Can you tell that they are a bit apprehensive? Anyway, they had a really good first day, they both have made friends and they're going to do great.

I got a pretty good smile out of T. See how he buckles that chest strap on his backpack? He's always done that.

The boys look sharp in their school outfits. They are both smart and this type of school will be great for them.

They both look quite handsome in their new school clothes. . . so neat and tidy! I'm glad they like their new school. I think they'll always do the best they can and make lots of new friends.

Ahhhh... I love their school outfits. I'm so glad that the Charter school came through. I REALLY love your flowers in the front. What happy colors and would look beautiful in a vase. What a great summer the boys had and I'm glad they are making new friends.

There was an old owl that sat in an oak. The more he saw, the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. R & T you be like that bird.
