Spot The Difference

As this week is the week when most school children will be heading back to the classrooms and Facebook is awash with “first day” pictures, I thought I would wade in with a contribution of my own.  The purpose of the “first day” pictures is to compare your child to a) those others of the same age/year group and b) themselves 12 months ago.

These two pictures here demonstrate the contrast between my son and my daughter over a gap of only 5 years. Only…. blimey, such a lot has happened in the past 5 years but nothing has been so remarkable as the growth rate of my son. Emma seems to have shrunk beside her brother!!



I thank God daily for my two children. They are healthy, hearty, beautiful inside and out, and they are my pride and joy. I know pride is a sin, but come on, who wouldn’t be proud of these two?!

Good luck tomorrow son on your first day in Year 10. Gulp.

      Emma’s just about to start her second year at university. I’m not certain but I think that she is the equivalent of US college age? She’s going to be 20 later this month.
