At least I got an extra year, right?
If we lived anywhere else odds are she would have shipped off to middle school last year. Yay for living where Middle School doesn't start till 7th grade! It actually kind of freaks me out to say "middle school", most of them are Jr Highs here.
My oldest child went off to Middle School this morning.
My oldest child rode a bus to school for the first time.
My oldest child should be stepping on to that bus to head home any minute now.
I can't wait to hear how the first day was!
Never fear-she was very excited.
Charlotte not so much.
She rolled out of bed right as Malia was getting ready to head out the door. Determined not to be left behind, she threw on the first thing she could find as quickly as possible (thus the reason it's on backward), grabbed the first shoes she could find and came barreling out the front door crying.
It was cute.
It was sweet.
It was a little sad too.
Charlotte cried as Malia picked up her things to head off to the bus stop.
She cried harder as Malia walked off down the sidewalk.
Then she started screaming and chasing after her.
(loudly enough that our next door neighbor who had a window open came out to see who was dying. Sorry Alicia!)
Off on her next big adventure in life.
I hope she loves it.
