Yesterday, I dropped off my oldest son at his first day of his very last year at middle school. I also dropped off my youngest son at his first day of his very last year at elementary school. Both of the kids told me bye, and were off to their day like it was just another day.
Agnes did well, until we arrived at the drive-way, then she didn’t want to leave me behind. Agnes’ school was completely packed, and there wasn’t enough time to park and walk in for the morning. I asked her if it was o.k. if she walked in all by herself this year. She was a little sad, but she said “I can do it”.
As I waved good-bye to her, and made my way through the traffic, I realized just how much my kiddos have grown. They have grown into amazing big kids, and I am very lucky to be their mom.
They all had a great first day at school, and all three of them were ready to go back first thing this morning. I have a feeling this is going to be a good school year.
