My Heart Hurts

I just got home from dropping my baby off to his new school for his first day of third grade. We got rezoned recently and so he is going to a different school this year. We are excited – it’s a great school and I plan to be just as involved as I was at his last school. But it’s different. And while since he heard about the change about six months ago he’s handled it like a pro – I saw it in his eyes today. He was nervous.

I wanted to walk him into his classroom and be there with him every step of the way. But I waved good-bye from the front of the school and watched him walk through the doors into a new world. One filled with adventures. His adventures. New friends. New challenges…Some good, some bad.

And I’m excited for him. But – all the same….

….my heart hurts.
