First Day of School

First time in man-made fabrics

New backpack

That's right- time to throw out the crayons and start cramming for the SATs.

There was a moment this morning when Declan asked to just go back to his old school, but on the whole he is very excited about starting preK at PA.  We had a class mingle sesion on Monday, where he got to meet the other 17 kids in his class.  Declan went around introducing himself "Hi, I'm your new friend Declan."  To one kid, he said "I'm Declan.  Do you want to play with me?  I'm REALLY nice."  He has inherited his mother's gift for shameless self-promotion, and I couldn't be more proud. 


  1. So grown up looking! Lee-Ann, look at you posting on the day the photos were taken. Very impressive. Let us know how he likes his new school!

  2. I agree with Eve; very impressed by your promptness! D looks so handsome. He'll make a wonderful mate for Abbey. Or Sophie, if he likes them young.

  3. The promptness is largely attributable to my trying to get the jump on the horde of cute children starting school. Eve, he liked his new school very much, and his teachers seem to have taken a shine to him, which is a relief. Nicole, he'd be lucky to land either one of your girls. Then they could have McGuire in-laws on both sides, which would be something.
