James Preller, 2nd Grader

February 24th, 2009 Posted in Family

First, please note this blog’s snazzy new “Search” function. With more than 200 posts since May, I figured it was time.

I’ve also added a couple of childhood photos to the, um, “Photos” page. I hope to add a couple more, as time allows.

A lot of kids who read Jigsaw Jones are in second grade. In fact, Jigsaw himself is in second grade — and has been, for eleven years now.

This is what I looked like in second grade on the day of my first communion. That is, washed up, combed, wearing clean socks and, for a time at least, decidedly on the side of angels. This was when I attended St. Frances de Chantel in Wantagh, Long Island, New York. I am quite certain that this was (and will forever remain) the only time in my life that I wore a white clip-on bow tie. One can only hope.

    Jimmy, you look so serious and pious in the photo — but 2nd grade and communion (and clip on ties) are serious business after all!
