Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The First Day of School

Summer isn't over, but my kids' summer vacation is. Today, Abbie and Jack went to their first day of school for the year. I've never seen them more excited, except maybe on Christmas or their birthdays. While taking pictures this morning, I told Jack to smile like he was playing Wii. I was expecting a huge smile, but instead got the pose below. :)

Pretend like you're playing Wii Jack!

I remember loving the first day of school when I was a kid. It's great to see Abbie and Jack doing the same.

Abbie and Jack, entering 1st and 2nd grade

I especially like the thought of the things that follow the beginning of the school year: Broncos Football, DU Hockey and (my favorite) Ski Season. It's gonna be a great year.

I looked at the pictures before reading the post and thought "wonder why Jack is acting like he's milking a cow?"

Hahaha the Wii picture is hilarious. Being a father of a 4 year old myself, I know everyday I'm in for a big laugh just because little kids are so simple and logical
