..he is officially registered for HIGH SCHOOL! Yes. The class of 2015 had their freshman orientation last night. Back in the day we just showed up a week before school started, collected our schedule and went on our merry way to pick out the perfect outfit for Day One. Not anymore. As with every other subject in life, there are choices galore. Did you know that fall sports don't start in "the fall?" Pre-practices begin in June. Yes, June.

After a 45 minute introduction to every club known to man, a brief description of every class on the schedule, a performance by the girls' choir and a testimonial from a staff member/parent-of-a sophomore, we were free to roam the tables in the corridor. Everything from Photography Club to Football to the PTSA was represented behind display boards and smiling faces of teachers, students and parents. Quinn and I took it all in and left a bit overwhelmed. Fortunately, deciding on his schedule for the next four years wasn't required. Phew. We did, however, come home and log on to the school website and pick electives: French and Weight Training. Hmmm.

For nostalgia's sake, I just had to post a picture of Quinn jumping off the bus on his first day of Kindergarten. I remember a fellow parent telling me "Once they start Kindergarten, 12 years will fly by." Boy, was he right. Before I know it we'll be filling out college applications and ordering a cap and gown. One milestone at a time, right?
