here comes middle school

a fellow homeschool mom heard her son talking about
his friends’ elementary school graduation.
“Do you want to have a graduation? Well then, we’re going to have one.”

like many homeschooling moms do,
she put out a call to see if other families wanted to join.
what happened on a sunny weekday on the grounds of Watkins Regional Park
was intimate and so touching;
and was complete with awards, trophies and speeches,
followed by a visit to the Old Maryland Farm,
a hay ride, carousel & train rides and miniature golf.


i thought it was quite fitting.
middle school is on the cusp of the time
when she probably wouldn’t be caught dead riding the kiddie train.

childhood is too short.
