Class is in session! Amazing how fast summer zoomed by, and as usual, the first week of school is the hottest.
We sent off our youngest daughter to art school in Oakland (wasn't easy), enrolled our granddaughter in LAUSD's crown jewel, the Cortines High School for the Visual and Performing Arts, and applauded our oldest son, transferring from PCC to Occidental College. Not bad for a 40-year-old War on Iraq vet.
Getting into a good school is a challenge. Staying in any school is even harder. If you are in school, don't give up! If your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin ... anybody you know ... is in school, give them support and encouragement. And lunch money doesn't hurt, either.
And me? Banning High in Wilmington's class of '71 just had our 40th reunion. Soy viejo, but I'm still learning.
