The End Begins #SOL21

Today is the first day of the last quarter, of the last semester, of the last year of my son’s public school career. 44 days, 9 more weeks, 9 more Mondays. I know these weeks will fly by, but I sit this morning seeking to cherish this final lap in the race of becoming an adult.

Today will be a return to a somewhat normal schedule. Hybrid learning is over. All the students will be in the building at the same time, generating spring energy throughout the halls. I don’t think there will be the typical “senioritis” this year. These students have longed to be back together, to experience the everyday moments of high school existence…tired Mondays, laughter over a spilled drink, the pressure of getting to class on time, huddling over a funny video on Youtube, groaning over yet another assignment. While also still holding out hope for the extraordinary moments…prom, senior picnic, graduation, open houses, farewell parties.

44 days. Here we go!

  1. Elementary schools are going back in person full on today. I’m as excited as you are. I’m looking forward to seeing all of them at once.

  2. This post captures so many emotions all in one page. Line about the typical senioritis missing is probably spot on. They want so badly to be together and I am so hopeful that they will get to have all of the end of the year celebrations. Enjoy these last few months and keep writing about it so you can remember everything ♥️♥️
