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!

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
