Maybe a garbage man:
Sorting the recycling...by taste.
The Lewy decimal system.
How 'bout a little splash party?
Just file this all under "M" for Mess.
I like that Lew is a blurr of activity in these shots as that is what he is in person: constantly on the move.

Watching for the bus.
For Junior and Senior Kindergarden, kids on Wolfe Island go to school on "A" days, which are Mondays, Wednesdays and random Fridays. This schedule is memory intensive and screw-up prone. I laminate the sheet that indicates "A" days and semi-permanently fix it to the icebox. Year one: no accidental mix-ups. But I think it's just a matter of time.
This year, I hope that Dex learns to read! This will also be the first year (of many) that he'll have homework. I'm dreading homework. I really don't relish the idea of having yet another thing to nag my children about. I'm hoping that he'll be so excited about school and learning, that he'll just do it without constant reminders. My fingers are crossed!
People keep telling us how once kids get in school the years just fly right by. It's beginning to feel that way. Next year Neville will be in school too. I'm trying to "be" in these moments but they are so full and fleeting. It's hard to catch them.

Science: 99% hard (well, not always--see above) work, 1% reward.

Those two black things, those are socks strewn on the floor.
