I woke up early and got breakfast on the table for Vaughan, which is easy cause he like a bowl of cereal for breakfast each morning.
Then, with less production as last year, we stepped out front for pictures, hopped in the van and drove to school.
Wow! They have grown so much. Branden is starting 11th grade and Vaughan 10th.
After a 10 minute wait in the car pool line they were gone. I was threatened that if I took pics they'd take my camera away.
So I did what any good mother of teenagers would do, I turned off my flash as took pictures anyway; no matter how big they get, I'm still the boss!
I drove away and began to cry.
Does the crying after the first day ever end?
If I had to guess I'd say for me, no.
Each step they take is one step closer to being gone, I just don't know it I will ever get over that.
So 10th and 11th grade are underway.
sigh - deep breath
It's gonna be a good year!
