The End and The Beginning

This morning we gulped coffee and pop-tarts and rushed down to the school to hang out with 60 second graders. Dan and the kids planted a tree in honor of Jesse who was the mayor here in tiny town for 27 years and recently passed away. Dan grew up across the street from Jesse who ordered 600 trees planted in town, that now tower over us. We told the second graders he was like the Lorax and we put a Japanese Lilac in the school yard for him and next week they'll put a placard up with Jesse's name and Dan will serve his last week as mayor.
