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.
