Tonight our school had its teacher meet and greet. Students came in to get their school information, find their lockers, get their supplies and meet their teachers. Kaeson went around to his classes (all in the same hall) and got into his locker (right outside my room) and put his name on all of his supplies, he turned to me with the biggest smile on his face that I have seen in a LONG time (and he is ALWAYS smiling) and said:
“Mom, do you ever just get that feeling in your belly that everything is going to be ok? Well, I have that feeling. This year is going to be awesome. Thanks for bringing all of us to this school.”
And that, my friends, makes all the difference to me in the world. This is going to be a good year. We’ve all got this.
