Desmond is also growing up (way too fast, might I add). He's now in the grade that Max was when I went off to college. I still think of him as the cute little Kindergartner he was my senior year of High School. But, he started MIDDLE SCHOOL yesterday. MIDDLE SCHOOL. Seriously kid- stop growing up. You're making me feel OLD.
Initial reports from the first day all came in pretty positive. Nobody got their head stuck in a toilet. Max got a little lost on the way to one of his classes (he was kind of in the wrong room for 15 minutes), but it all worked out okay in the end. My classes went pretty good, too! My first class was in a double-booked classroom, so it took some time to work that out, but it just meant more time to catch up on what everyone did all summer. Homework isn't too bad, yet. I mean, I'm about to get thrown out of my house for reading the entire book of Revelation out loud (hey- it's homework for tomorrow!), but whatever. :)
