5th Grade. His last year in elementary school.
It will be in about 2 hours when Declan gets home from school, the very last time as a 4th grader.
Somehow it hit both him and me hard this year. He got a little teary last night… OK, maybe a lot… at the idea that elementary school was close to over.
But then he astounds me with his maturity too. This morning I broke the news he didn’t get into summer camp at his home school and would go elsewhere. He was upset, naturally, but as I explained the details he calmed down and then smiled a huge, missing tooth grin.
“I thought you meant I was changing schools for next year.”
Whoah. And he only got a little upset?
My little man is growing up. And is not so little anymore.
