My grandson Hunter, son Andy,and I had a chance to have lunch at Indian Land Elementary School with a bunch of 4th graders. Hunter is 9 years old. This is a picture of him and his buddy, Chance. Cute, huh?

Do you remember when you were 9 years old and going to 4th grade? For me it was in the middle of WWII. Thank you, I’ll take today. While we were waiting for the 4th graders to get out of class and go to this 400 seat cafeteria, I was enamored by all the pictures and writings and colors on the walls of the hall. They show their work off much more than we did back in the dark ages.

On one display the children had to fill in the blanks surrounding their art work.
