First Day of 8th Grade

 Today is John's first day of 8th grade.  His school has decided to go back to in person learning 5 days a week.  I am a mix of emotions.  Is this the right decision? After weeks of thinking it over we decided to let him go.  Since he goes to a smaller, private school they have the means to space the kids out and social distance.  There will still be many rules (like this mask for one) and restrictions but I feel the school is doing everything possible to stay safe and at the same time give the kids the best school experience under the circumstances.  What a crazy world right now. 

If you are wondering if he's smiling under that mask, the answer is definitely not.  He hasn't been up this early since March! 

Sending good thoughts and prayers to all families who are trying to make it work the best way they know how to during this unprecedented time. 

Stay safe my friends! Remember to be grateful for the little things 💟


  1. Have a great day, John!
    You too, Mom!

  2. I hope he has the best week back to school. I know it’s so scary, but I’ve seen first hand the hard work that is going in to the extra cleaning and precautions. Bless you all! 😋

  3. Hope he is smiling since it’s almost fri-yay!

  4. I hope John has a wonderful and safe school year!!!
