Summer 2014, Part 3

Summer's over, though I don't know how: Samantha, after hopefully telling her animals and dolls all summer that they would get to go back to "baby school" "too-morrow," started back yesterday. She is in the Dragonfly group this year with Esther, and some of her favorite friends are there too. She's had a fabulous first two days. Marcus starts first grade with Mr. Kelley tomorrow, and he's excited: he'll take the bus in tomorrow and Friday, because orchestra doesn't start until next week, and then Robert will bring him in by subway for orchestra in the mornings and I'll pick him up at the bus stop in the afternoons. My classes started today too, and I look forward to a good semester. Here are pictures from just a few of the highlights of the past month.
