The Bridgford family arrived with lots of smiles and energy. Mom is a colleague of mine (teaches the same grade right next door to me!) and the 2 kids are what I call my "fetchers"... yep, they do exactly what you are thinking, they fetch things for me after school. I can't tell you how much time they have saved me running to the copy machine or printer to pick up things for me! I call them "fetcher 1" and "fetcher 2" (you know, like Dr. Suess' Thing One and Thing Two - smile) and I absolutely adore both of them! So, the only family member I was meeting for the first time was Dad. It was lovely seeing my colleague and her husband together with the kids - they are so obviously a very loving family (and you can see it in the pictures), but they also have a lot of fun together. There was a lot of laughing, so I got a lot of great photos!
I am still working on their photos, but I wanted to post a few tonight... before I get busy with my first graders (smile). They hit the jackpot for Fall colors, but it's the feeling of a close family that I think shines through in the photos! I hope you enjoy seeing this truly delightful family!!
