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!

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
