My little brother had his very first day at school last week. Many photos were taken with pride, but I suspect that this will be the one which makes us laugh and remember that day in years to come.

This is not the Bug. It is Darth Vader, and when Darth Vader (you have to say the Vader or he will not answer) is asked what he wants for tea, he will answer in his Darth Vader voice. If you need clarification, he will repeat it for you, but only in the voice.

Anyway, Darth was so excited to be going to school that there was a party atmosphere at our house. We played Monster and Papparazzi on the Ipod, and the beat was marked by Darth’s ever present shooting sound-effects. He did eventually agree to remove his helmet so that we could go to school. His teacher will remember him as another fresh-faced boy eager to get going. We, on the otherhand, will remember his first day of school with slightly more hilarity!
