So crazy to think when I started this Blog Veg was heading off to his first year of pre-school and now he is in 6th grade.
Yup, class has started and the Vegkid is officially a Middle school student.
Some parents get sad when their kids progress through milestones but I think it is awesome. I mean we aren't raising babies to stay babies or toddlers to never grow up, we are raising the adults they will become and every step in that direction is a huge achievement.
I'm so proud of this stubborn, strong willed, smarty pants and have loved being his mom every step of the way. It is so thrilling to watch him grow in to the man he will be and middle school is certainly the next step in that direction.
When I dropped him off yesterday, there were no pictures, hugs or requests for assistance to the class room.
It was more like:
"Take me to the drive up line"
Hop out of car and he says:
"I got this, see ya!"
That was that... He was off and I had a giant grin. It was a defining moment as this new journey for him begins yet he took it with such pride and confidence.
I'm grinning now just thinking about it.
Life is so good!
