Oh little Wolfie. Yesterday was the first day of school and I was so proud of my boy. I can’t believe how tall he’s grown and quickly time is passing. I swear he was in preschool just the other day.
Second grade is a big mile stone. We are no longer considered, “the little kids”. I’m always a little anxious, but my boy is a pro. He was looking forward to the first day and not nervous at all.
Wolfie was also very excited to see his buddies on the play ground. It’s tricky, as a parent. On the one hand, you don’t want to place too much importance on being “popular”. I want him to be independent and confident….but at the same I want him to be social and have good friends. So I was bustin’ to see all his pals come running up to him and shouting, “Hey! Wolfie!!” There were grins and even hugs. It was so cute. Seven is a great age…they are getting bigger for sure, but they are still our little guys and most had their mama’s there to walk them in to class.
I can’t wait to see what this school year brings, sweet boy!
