Somehow we made it to the end of March! That means today is already the last day of the Slice of Life Writing Challenge. I was telling my principal recently that I didn’t think I’d like it and that I thought I’d drop out after a week, but I made it! Yay, me! This was more fun and interesting than I thought it’d be, and it really didn’t feel like a chore. (Sometimes I struggled and stole formats from other Slicers, but that’s neither here nor there…) I looked forward to sitting down with my laptop and just writing each night…and now I really need to make sure I keep a notebook close by for when an idea strikes me.
Today wasn’t just a big day for me, though. My older son, Josh, took a fifth-grade class trip to their middle school for orientation this morning. The thought of it brings tears to my eyes. Ten years ago, my husband and I were told that biological children might not be part of our future, and now we have one rising to sixth grade in the fall. It’s crazy to me to think that he’ll be taking a bus to a new school in September, where he and his classmates will basically be starting over as the little kids, the newbies, the fresh blood. I hated middle school. I hope it treats him better than it did me.
So this is it for the year! I may post once in a while, but I’m actually looking forward to posting again for #SOL23! See you all then, and have a great rest of your school year!
