My back to school wish...

I am wishing both of them a successful school year...


Owen is not gagging, he was seeing his breath. It's a little chilly here this morning!


To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

and a most successful life.
