Tomorrow is going to be a big day for us.
Noodle will be starting 8th grade.YIKES! My baby girl in her last year of jr.high.
Not only will she be starting 8th grade, but it will be at a new school. I didn’t blog about it too much (although some of you unfortunate souls had to hear more than your fair share of it) but her old school went through some major changes that we just were not comfortable leaving her there to endure.
It was a heart breaking decision, especially to leave with only one year left, but we truly believe we made the one that was best for OUR child and are looking forward to new beginnings.
I was worried about Noodle and how she would adjust (she used to be deathly shy) but we went a day last week for a “new parent” meeting walked in the door and she was off giggling in the corner with some old and some new friends. And now? She is upstairs trying on her uniform! A fate worse than death – wearing a uniform – and she willing put it on early all on her own!
We will miss the familiarity of it all.
We will miss the friends who have become like family.
We are looking forward to a fresh start.
We are looking forward to making new friends.
You are turning into a lovely young lady right before our eyes. You are tackling the world by leaps and bounds and we can’t wait to see how you continue to grow and blossom this year. You are our greatest joy, today, tomorrow and always.
