Happy Halloween!

My boy as Doctor Benjamin Franklin! Last year he was General George Washington - yes, he is quite the history buff.

It's back to school...

Today is the first day of school for my little guy. He had a really great summer - taking rocket making classes, swimming, going to VBS, camping on the North Shore and visiting out-of-state relatives.

Peter Hobart always has a great Welcome Back celebration for the kids - complete with a bubble machine and parents lining the sidewalks cheering the kids on their first day of school.

Have a great school year!
