To all the moms dropping off kids for the first day of Middle School today...doesn't it feel a bit reminiscent of taking them to Kindergarten?
In Kindergarten, I walked him in with smiles and encouragement, and didn't break down crying until I was out of the building.
In Middle School, I excitedly encouraged him in the drop-off line (no walking him in the building this year of course!) about what a great year it will be, and how well he's going to do, and I didn't break down crying until he walked in the school and the door shut behind him.
Oh my goodness...
look at that sweet little boy, and look at him now! He's such a kind hearted young man....my boys both really enjoy him. They both talk about his kindness....that says something. :)
He's gonna have a great year...thankful we're all doing this "watching them grow up thing" together.
