Today is Skrock-ette’s first day of 7th grade — gone are the late weeknight visits to RuneScape. Although still nervous and excited, she was more at ease this year as this is her second year in middle school.
The days of posting a picture of her at her desk are over — my suggestion to accompany her into her classroom today was denied (I wore my hair in one of those young looking disheveled not quite hair bun not quite pony tail styles to increase my hipness in the event she accepted my suggestion). Truth be told, it was counter ‘suggested’ that I not get out of the car. Not wanting to add to the nervousness, I complied, but this limited my photo angle. Oh well.
At any rate, it’s going to be a great year — in addition to being a good student, she’s a sweet, compassionate human being. We’re super proud!
