Back to School …..or First day of School really!

I managed to catch my live-wire son in a rare moment of calmness and contemplation on the morning of his first day of Primary School.


This week the I Heart Faces theme is “Back to School” , and although (as usual) I have lots of photos of all 3 kids, this is the one I have chosen to submit.

He actually looks quite daunted and nervous in this photo, but let me assure you, he bounced into the classroom with a grin, and immediately started to play without even a backward glance towards me.

Later in the week, he told me he loved his new teacher lots and lots ….. as much as a cheese sandwich!!! Yes, coming from my son, this is high praise!

    That is a great capture on the first day. I think I will feel like that tomorrow – we start tomorrow. I like that his teacher ranks up there with a cheese sandwich. Too cute!

    Such a sweet picture! I love his expression!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I have a lot of acquaintances who live in N. Ireland. Someday, I would love to come visit. My parents lived in Belfast for a year after they were married back in 1979-1980.

    Take care!

    How cute is that? That’s like me saying I love something just as much as a peanut butter sandwich! My ultimate favorite sandwich ever!

    He’s adorable.
