Yesterday I sent the small people in my life off to Middle School… BOTH OF THEM.

My how far we’ve come.

I was really proud of my 6th grader, he really took it all in stride despite being anxious about this new phase in his life. Cool as a cucumber, that one. He sailed through his first day. (I expected nothing less.)

Meanwhile the older one was just excited to see his old teachers. He reportedly gave them all hugs and asked them about their summer. I love that about him. He is so sweet and innocent. (Shockingly still.)

I love them so much sometimes that my heart hurts.

Here’s to a new year of learning and growing.

Have you sent your little ones off yet?
