Here’s to the kids who are different,
The kids who don’t always get A’s.
The kids who have ears twice the size of their peers,
And noses that go on for days.

Here’s to the kids who are different,
The kids they call crazy and dumb.
The kids who aren’t cute and don’t give a hoot,
Who dance to a different drum.

Here’s to the kids who are different,
The kids with the mischievous streak.
For when they have grown,
As history’s shown,
It’s their difference that makes them unique.

Wow, again, these pictures are amazing! I love that the poem you included celebrates the differences in children...wouldn't life be so boring if all our children were the same? Its the quirks that make people lovable.

Love the poem. Aren't we all somewhat different in our own ways. Your son is growing up fast. His hair is amazing. Great photos as always.

remember when you taught school? You used to send me wonderful cards so artfully done and talk about the awesome things you were doing. Those were some very blessed kids! Kaish looks so happy! I hope this school year is a great one for him!

I miss having school age kids and being a teacher myself in the fall, but I went down to my daughter in law's school and took pictures of all her 5th graders, all bright, shiny and ready for a new year. All the kids are in my prayers for wonderful school year! Great pics!
