My 6-year-old started first grade. It’s been hard for me to grasp this. It feels like she was just born yesterday. My 11-year-old will be starting middle school soon. This will be her first year in middle school. I don’t want to even think about it yet.
I tried to hold tight onto summer. In the last few days before my 6-year-old started school I found ways to go to an amusement park and have a picnic up in the mountains. It was fun and kept me from thinking too much about all the changes.
