…..become a parent of a high schooler?
J’s first day at Santa Fe Catholic High School. This is a new school for him, so first day in another way as well. I am beyond nervous for him but he seems confident and ready for the new experience. Prayers, people….PRAYERS!!
….become a parent of a 4th grader?
Aidan’s first day of school at St.Joseph Catholic School. This is the first time Aidan has not gone to school with his brother. He had mixed emotions…happy that he’s the only brother left at the school but sad that he’s the only brother at the school!!!
….become a football parent AS WELL as a basketball parent?
J decided he wanted to try football this year. I figure it can’t hurt…well…it CAN hurt really bad!!! (He’s nursing a muscular injury now because of learning to tackle! No practice today but back tomorrow…). But it can’t hurt because he is getting great conditioning for basketball and if he doesn’t like it, he gained some experience about another sport! Win WIN in my book!
….have a child that wants to be a swimmer too??
Aidan spent a month with my sister in VA. His cousins swim and he desperately wants to swim now! With a month there and swim camp for 6 weeks, we are in swim mode to try and get on a team (or so HE says!). He swims every Saturday at the Y and he loves it! We shall see….
….forget how to use a lock for a locker in school?
I’m totally aging myself here but I remember going “3 turns to the right, 2 turns to the left, 1 turn to the final number”. Over 20 minutes trying to open this damn thing….only to find out you don’t do this ANYMORE!!! Wha?????
…..become the person that signs up for TWO races in one weekend!!
Yep…while J was figuring out his lock I was registering for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend run. I did the 10k last year and was all too excited when I received the email that sign up was August 9th at noon. You know what I did??? I signed up for the 5k AND 10k!!! It’s costly but I am going to run with some girlfriends from HS and plan on making it a girls weekend! All too excited!! I need the motivation to get back and what a perfect way!
I am sure this school year will many more firsts, so maybe there will be more “When did I…..?“posts in the future!😉
How was your day??? Did anyone have some first day of school stories???
