MiniWarrior Takes On 5th Grade

Today began MiniWarriors first day of 5th grade.

*sniffs a Momma tear*

Where have the years flown to that my baby faces his last year of grade school?

He didn't want Summer to end and was a bit sulky about heading back to the confinement of school.

I told him that as his school only goes up to 5th grade, that makes him Top Dog of the school grades and that cheered him considerably.

This morning when I dropped him off at his Dads to catch the school bus, he pumped a fist and made barking noises, grinning happily.

Woof woof, big dawg. Woof woof.

Thats what we used to tell the boy-You'll be one of the Big Kids!
Unfortunately it made going into the high school harder as one of the squirts again :)
