Look Closely, my The Boy. Look Closely


Look closely: do you recognise the setting? It's the ICT suite at The Primary School. The Year 5/6 shared area is in the background.

Look closely: see the Insert-Name-Here tops? It must be the Insert-Name-Here After School Club. You went there for 3 years altogether, and you so loved it there.

Look closely: can you tell that you and The Playleader have been crying? It's your last ever Insert-Name-Here session. You were both so sad that this time was coming to an end.

Look closely: is that a tickling hand? The Playleader's trying to make you smile for the camera. It worked - you cheered up just enough!

Look closely: can you see their love and care for you?

It's all there in the photo if you just:

American Crafts papers, Thickers (well, duh!) and - alphas that are NOT Thickers!! But they are still American Crafts....

Ahhh... Nice to have a picture with the play-leader(s?)in. I have photos of J. in his nursery and school sweaters, but never with any of the staff.
Great page - love the colour-scheme.
The "Duh" comment about the Thickers made me laugh. I kind-of get the impression you might like Thickers, just a little....
