Losing a Baby, Gaining a Teenager

Last night was A’s 6th grade continuation. Some schools make a big deal out of it, some don’t. Ours went all out, pretty much like everything else they’ve done.

For the past three days, it’s been busy. A make-up Field Day, a trip to the middle/Jr. High school where most of them will go, a trip to an indoor amusement park. Really, really busy. A was pretty excited. Then we went to continuation.

Our school held it in a mega-church, and it wasn’t hard to see why. It was the largest no-cost space that they could find. The place was full. At the beginning of the evening, all the 6th graders walked into the main room in a processional.

At the end of the evening, they were 7th graders. Going on and further away from home, and another step closer to becoming a teenager.
