I am just blown away by the fact that my oldest is in middle school. This should not come as shock, there are people who I know with their youngest leaving for college, but still, I am probably more nervous about middle school than he is.
My favorite comment about middle school from him today was that "It isn't like on TV where there's a lot of bullies in middle school." Good call, my dear boy, I think we need to talk about fact vs. fiction again.
The other thing I had to get over was that they are now in two separate schools until he is a senior and she is a freshman.
