The First and Second Day of School
As I mentioned yesterday, it's been a little chaotic around these parts lately. So when the first day of school starts bright and early with lots of rain, a parent just might miss their child going off to their Senior year of high school. Yeah. That totally happened. While I was busy getting ready, the older child had to leave for school, and I missed it! I was so sad. But she's practically a grown up and drives herself to school, so I wasn't worried just sad. But it did mean that I missed any chance of taking her photo on the first day of school. But here's my beautiful girl on the second day of high school:
James started a new school this year. I have been more than a little worried. But I needn't have. His most interesting observation after the first day? "The kids part down the middle of the hall into two rows so I can pass. They do this for all the sixth graders." I think he's enjoying being the big man on campus.
This year marks the end of some things. The end of my daughter being in school (well, except for college). The end of my son going to Elementary School. It's going to be an epic year as we prepare ourselves for some big changes.
Frankly, I'm just grateful they both enjoy their schools and their teachers. That's all a mama can hope for.
