Today was the official first day of fourth grade and middle school. Yowzas! How did this happen?!
The back-to-school hoopla began on Monday with the ice cream social and teacher reveals at the elementary school. Gryffy was super excited to get several of his buds in class and was greeted first thing by Austin: "Hey, classmate!"
I was a mess of emotion, which isn't usually the case on the first day. But this is the first year the kids are in different schools. I know they're meant to grow up and become more independent, but it takes awhile for my heart to catch up with them. They are my world, and my world is changing. And it's so good and hard and beautiful.
Fortunately I was able to pull myself together with some friends and mimosas. Thanks Jenn!
Only 179 more days until summer. :)
