First week of 11th grade has it’s own realities that set in after a while…
I will never have another first week of school for 11th grade, so here are some of the highlights I want to remember…
— Photo above taken around 10pm. We’re both out of sorts. Long week.
— “Yes, I do have all I need for school.” (in terms of supplies)
— 2 days later — “I need a binder and an eraser.”
— “I don’t have homework.”
— 10:30pm bedtime — “I’m still doing homework. ”
— This was the year I was on top of lunches – mostly salads, veggies, and a few Rice Krispy Treats
— This was the year he drove to school. Almost every day.
— 3rd day of not texting me that he got to school safely – I drove him.
— Most likely staying up past 10:30pm, although I’m only speculating, not accusing. 😉
— I only asked “how was your day” for the first 3 days then stopped. He always spills everything after dinner.
— He’s taller than me. He dresses better than I do. He probably drives better than I do.
— I want time to stop. Yesterday. Or at least just freeze a little.
I’m going to be okay… because today he is still here and he has not gone off to college yet.
And today is enough.
