Kindergarten Orientation

 My wife and I went to kindergarten orientation for our oldest son, Andrew, it was parents only.  You hear the comment all the time when you have kids “it goes by fast” and it’s 100% true.  I was sitting there during the orientation, and the teachers were talking about independence, riding the school bus, handling issues on the play ground by themselves, just basically becoming an independent individual.  I got a bit emotional, and couldn’t wait to get to my parents house, and give my son a hug.  I am thrilled to see him move on to this next phase of life, but also a little sad at the same time.  I just want to hold him and protect him in my arms forever, but the world is waiting for him, which is a scary thought in itself.    I am proud of my son.   I love him so much.

One thought on “Kindergarten Orientation

  1. Awwwwww. Your boys are adorable! Kindergarten is bitter sweet. My oldest will be going into 2nd grade next year, but it feels like he was just in Kindergarten. Still holding on since my littlest has another year or possibly two of preschool left. Fast is an understatement. I miss my babies!

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
