10th and 6th Grades
Okay, now that I am done crying we can discuss.
Here we are, another first day of school under our belts!
It was the same and it was different.
Same great kids.
But, different house, different door (oh, I miss my red door!) different school, different grades, different shoe sizes.
These fellas just keep growing. I have a love-hate thing going with it.
I LOVE this season. The pre-teen and teen years are so far my favorites.
Where did my babies go? Why can’t I have both?
The difference in Wylie between this year and last year is staggering.
I just can’t even.
In addition to all the other changes, the boys are also riding the school bus for the first time ever.
(A lovely part of rural life is that they have a decent school bus experience.)
The Preservation Puppies and I walked them down to their stop of the first day. Couldn’t help myself.
I did however hang behind and head for home as soon as we saw the bus coming – I didn’t want to be that mom.
You know, the weird overly-attached mom of the new kids.
So instead, I was just the weird stalker-ish trying to play it cool mom.
Can I just say how I am just so proud of these boys?
Because I am.
They are amazing.
And so far, reports from the new school are positve. Hurrah!
Peace & Love Friends,

Wow what a lovely post, can see the boys growing up fast! Here in the UK the children don’t start back until the 6th September so another week or so of freedom!
It is a challenge when they are teenagers – just far enough not to be clingy, but close enough to be there if they want you. x They look gorgeous boys you deserve to be proud. x
