Ok, first day of school here at our house. Now, I should be telling you about my high school senior, how this is the start of his last year of high school, and how he has a load of easy classes, senior project, yearbook, graduation, etc... but instead this is my college freshman.... yep, that's right. My little baby, my 17 yo is starting college today. You see, he only needed 1 credit to graduate and so when we met with the principle and guidance councilor to work out his schedule, the principle suggested that he do the early entry program at our local community college and that would count toward his single credit for early graduation for high school and he would also be getting college credits. So, off he DROVE today to college. I missed the whole preparation time, the year I would normally have to prepare myself for my last child going to college, the cutting of the apron strings... I had to fast forward to my little baby going to college at 17, a whole year early. And even though I know he is more than capable of handling the work, he is having a little difficulty with his life happening so fast and today he was a bit more than nervous. New sneakers and some new notebooks, and off he went. He will have a full day today with 2 classes and a lab so he won't be home till almost 4 pm.... oh, mama is worrying about her little bird today! So, my baby bird has started his first flight out of the nest. Say a little prayer for him today.
Have a great day!
