The obligatory annual back-to-school photo (thoughtfully provided by my dad, since you’ll recall our camera is in for repairs) not only perfectly captures the attitudes of both kids towards school, but also shows off Emma’s amazing new temporary hair colour which I personally applied as a back-to-school treat, plus a bonus view of our new Mazda 5 –which I guess means you can now track us by our license plate number, should you need to. And actually the police may want to, since the picture also clearly shows me parked in a no-parking zone. Hey! Focus on the cute kids! Grade Five and Grade Three — where does the time go??.
