Back to School

Today is Tuesday after Labor Day, and by tradition, it is the start of another school year in Northern Virginia. Many of our friends in other parts of the country sent their kids back to school last month. It has been a good summer, but we're glad they're heading back for a new year of learning.

Seventy-nine years ago my Grandpa Leo entered school at Emmerich Manual High School in Indianapolis. I recently found his picture in the 1937 Booster yearbook:

I had found my other grandparents Keith D. Jones (Arsenal Tech Class of 1938) and Blanche Allene O'Brien (Broad Ripple Class of 1932) in their school yearbooks last year. While not a yearbook photo, the picture below shows my Granny, Lydia Campuzano, at the end of a school year in Tucson, Arizona in 1942.

We wish our kids the best of luck on a new school year.
