First day of school. Alex overslept this morning so only had twenty minutes to get ready before we left. He was cranky as a result, which made me glad I wasn't going to spend the next eight hours around him, but on the way to school, we talked some about his nerves. It's his first day at middle school, which is nerve-wracking enough, but he's facing it somewhat alone. Everybody he hung out with in elementary school went to the other middle school. That's the problem when it sits between the two middle schools. :(
I encouraged him as best I could, so hopefully his day goes well. Alicia's going to look out for him this first day, too, as well as she can.
I still can't believe how much he's grown. And how much he's still my baby that I just want to cuddle to protect.
