Hi Ho, Hi Ho…..
It’s off to school they go! Tyson to high school and Madi to middle school. Where has the time gone? What happened to my tow headed, rambunctious, five year old boy racing off to kindergarten full of excitement and energy? And my shy, hesitant, leery little girl who wouldn’t let go of my hand until I sat down at her kindergarten desk with her? They are still there, but boy have they changed and grown. It is hard to believe so much time has passed. Tyson, 5’10" and looking so handsome and grown up this year. Gone are the days of walking him to his classroom door. Now I just drop him off at carpool with a quick hug and kiss and the call of "Have an awesome day!" Of coruse, he is a sophomore now, and this high school thing is nothing new anymore. I’m sure as he walked through the doors of the high school this morning he thought "I’m so glad I’m not a freshman anymore!" And Madi….. I remember the days I was "allowed" to get out of the car with her and snap a few photos of her in front of the school. In her school uniform. Soooo cute! We laughed and remembered this morning as I dropped her off. There were so many cute kindergartners with their parents in front of the school taking pictures. I miss those days! This year I dropped Madi off in car-line…. she looked so cute with her hair done "just so"…. and her "skater" backpack and "skater" shoes! Her only individuality in a school full of uniforms and dress codes.
And so they are off… to school. And I feel sorta sad. They are growing up. Each new school year means they are another year older and another year closer to leaving the nest. I am happy for them and happy with the individuals they are becoming! And I hope they have the best school year yet!
I wonder what they are doing right now? What class are they in? Do they like their teachers? Are there any cute new kids? Are they happy? Do they miss me, like I miss them?
