First Day of School

Logan, Hayden and Madison on their first day back at school

This week, our oldest son Hayden started middle school.

It only seems like yesterday that he started primary school, but now he’s wearing a blazer and taking the next step in his education.  I may or may not have shed a tear, I can’t quite remember.

In the last couple of days, he has expressed a small amount of anxiety over this next stage.

And then, on the night before school started he marched out to us and proudly announced, “I’m looking forward to a new adventure.”

Yes, he was nervous, but he wasn’t going to let that stop him from stepping into his new year with confidence.

Yes, there are going to be challenges, but he was up to them.

Yes, he was going to be the youngest in the school again, but so will his friends.

Yes, it will be new and unknown, but new and unknown are also necessary.

I hope that there is a new adventure ahead for you.

And I hope that you aren’t daunted, but are able to step into the future with courage and confidence.
