Today My Youngest Child Began High School

July 11th, 2016 · No Comments · Family Life

A moment of silence please.

There was no picture on the steps in his new uniform, shoes, haircut, and backpack.  There are, in fact, no new uniform, shoes, haircut, or backpack today.  I didn’t even think about it until we were about half-way there.  I made him take a selfie as we were driving down the street.  It wasn’t very good, and he’s not here to discuss it with, so I won’t post it.

He’s taking an OK History class.  They go to different places around the state everyday for two weeks, keep a journal about it.  Bing, Bang, Done!

I don’t know how I let this slip up on me.  My youngest child, is starting/has started high school.  He will be the class of 2020.  It feels like just yesterday that he was a baby.  We’ve been preparing for this all summer.

Uniforms.  Check.

Books. Check.

Tuition. Check.

And I was good with that.  Maybe it was that list thing.  And the actually getting something done thing.

And while I was driving him there early this morning, it dawned on me.  This is his first day of high school.  I am the Mother of a high schooler.  Again.  And for the last time.

How did he:


become a high schoooler?
