Another milestone for our family. The oldest kid is starting middle school. WOW. Look at all the supplies he needed. It's just massive compared to the crayons and one folder of years past.
His one request was for us to NOT drop him off on his first day. Nope, this kid was going to ride his bike. I didn't shed a tear. I shed many. Fortunately Ken followed him to school in his car just because he was convinced that the handle bar was loose. And it was.
But I stayed home with the girls and watched my oldest ride away to that new chapter in his life. I guess we still have many a hard lesson left to learn.
