Tonight we took Gabe to the high school orientation for next year's Freshman. Gabe is going to be in HIGH SCHOOL next year!!! I am a little freaked out. ;) Gabe is now taller than me and laughs at me and pats my head. Punk. Of course, he does this in a nice way, but I still think it is weird sometimes that I have a kid that old (until I look at my gray roots, then it is much more believable). I also must say that it is a good thing I am in Young Women's right now or we would have missed this night. A few of the YW were participating in it and mentioned it yesterday at church. I told them to text me the times for it since Gabe hadn't told me about it. By the way, while I still shun phones for the most part, I do enjoy texting now and then. ;)
Walking around the HS, I recalled my own HS days and how lost I always was! Why do I have no sense of direction--and that is not just something that came on in old age--I have never had it!! Luckily I don't have to navigate halls at DHS. It was fun to see Gabe chatting it up with his friends. I think he is a pretty good kid so far...! I think he will do just fine in HS. I still have several more months to get used to the idea that I have a kid that old!
