I'm in denial

The big brown envelope in the mailbox today was addressed to the parents of Ryan Hoke. I looked at the return address and shuddered — Guidance Department, Bay High School. Yikes! We've got an orientation meeting on Monday night for high school. Can't believe my son is going to be in high school later this year.

Of course it's the natural order of things, but high school brings us closer to college and the thought of him not being around the house, flopping on couches, making us laugh is too depressing for words.

Definitely the time for some deep, deep breaths. I remember being in just that situation.

My Ryan is now a junior in high school, getting letters from college, while my other son is a high school freshman.

Their high school years have been good ones, fun ones, so I have put my panic on temporary hold.

That said, when the actual college time comes . . . oh, my.

Ugh! Thanks for sharing, Kelly. I have another son two years behind him so we'll soon have two in high school. Breathe, breathe...
