The Alphabet to Omega is all Greek to me.


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Omega Wager … er, no, not quite right … oh, I know.  It was Alphabet, write?

Well, for starters, let me delve into archives and copy one day of rhymes I did on every letter of the alphabet for NaPoWriMo 2012.

F is for Friday, which is known as Good
Farewell’s what that Friday says, or it should,
For we are headed for a Double Dog –
Factu’lly, St. Bernard’s Peak’s (Peke 🙂 ) on the log!
 

Failure to be here will therefore ensue,
F-ing off to a place where, it is true,
Fair though the scene quite undoubtedly is,
Flop in the Internet’s rather a swiz!

Fret not,  for I will return, though, next week,
Frantic’ly striving a catch-up to seek,
Four days will give me G, H, I and J –
Fear that I’ll have to work hard, up to stay!

Well, the alphabet reminds me of schools, and those are things millions of kids throughout the world have started or gone back to within the past week or so.

Here, then, are pictures of the grandkids resuming their encounters with alphabets and such.

J was given the honour of posing with the principal of her school on her first day back.

R was given the honour of posing with the principal of her school on her first day back.

J with her fellows is demonstrating a U - or is it a W?

J with her fellows is demonstrating a U – or is it a W?

And, finally, the four most important letters of the alphabet  - in English, anyway.

    the innocence of children is always a delight to see. First day back at school too, those photos always make me smile and hold a hope the joy continues when they reach high school

  4. The last photo is my favourite. So adorable, both of them. 🙂 What a nice bright classroom your grandies have, and Little R looks so proud to be photographed with the principal.

  11. What a charming classroom! So much easier to learn if you don’t feel like you are locked in a cold windowless concrete cell. (We had bookbags on the back of our chair similar to those. Made me smile to see them again.
    A post full of smiles and happy faces. Thanks
