A First, A Last and a Last First

Today is a bittersweet day.

Youngest Son is going to a new school. A school his brothers never went to. That’s a first for him. He always goes where his brothers went. He went to the same elementary school, had the same teachers. Went to the same middle school, had the same teachers. And then the school district made some changes. They closed a middle school and redrew the boundaries. And now Youngest Son is going to a new school. One his brothers never attended. It’s a bit of a clean slate. No family reputation. No history with the teachers. Just an open book for him to write.

He’ll do great! I know he will. Can’t wait to hear about the first day of school!

This is Middle Son’s last year of having an older brother at school with him. He’s had Oldest Son to blaze a trail for him. They have a lot of different interests, but are a lot alike too. They are both in Band and having an older brother in Marching Band was definitely a boost. He gets the scoop on teachers; who to hope for and who to fear. Which classes to avoid and what to expect. I think he’s liked having an older brother at the high school, but I think he will like being the oldest there too.

He’ll do great! I know he will. Can’t wait to hear about the first day of school!

This is Oldest Son’s last first day of school. The last one I’ll be there to take pics of anyway. I don’t think he’ll want me there on his first day of college. I know he’s going to have a great senior year. In the last couple years I have watched him go from a fairly quiet, reserved teen to a confident, well-spoken young man. I’m so proud of the man he is becoming. I’m looking forward to all the lasts this year will bring and the excitement that goes along with them.

He’ll do great! I know he will. Can’t wait to hear about his last first day of school!

They all headed out together. To the high school. Youngest Son is taking Geometry at the high school so he goes with the older two for first hour, then busses to his middle school. A bit scary for him and his mom. Been a really long time since they all left at the same time for the same school.

Bittersweet. Firsts. Lasts. And last firsts.
