MiniWarrior Takes On Middle School

First day of driving MiniWarrior to and from Middle school--done.

I gotta tell you. I'm so dang proud of him.

He stands as tall as the 8th graders and walks amongst them as confident as an adult.

He's thrown himself into the new school year with a smile and excitement to learn new things.

I watched him walk through the throng of middle school peers this morning and got a little Mom misty eyed. He looks so old now. Broad shouldered, skin burnt dark brown from the sun, and a smile on his face.

I have no idea what his future will hold for him. But I don't have any doubt he'll succeed higher then we could ever envision.

You go, my MiniWarrior.

I'm so so proud of you.

Jadeykins: I know! It's hard at times now to remember he's only 11 :( He seems to shed his babyhood daily!

Aafrica: It seems he's grown overnight. Where is the little boy who's head reached the top of my hip? :)
Thank you for your wishes. :)
