The Long and the Short

So we went to the doctor today.

It was a funny little appointment.

Both Josh and Mikayla had their yearly physicals...Josh to go to Kindergarten, and Mikayla to go to Junior High.

Holy Crap.





I know I often wax nostalgic about the kids growing up, but this really struck me...even down to the types of conversations the pediatrician had with Josh versus the one he had with Mikayla...it just blows my mind.

Not to mention the fact that the doctor also got a little nostalgic, talking about how he remembered the first time I ever brought Mikayla in...for her Kindergarten physical...it's no wonder I am feeling misty.

No Kidding, HOLY CRAP. You are going to have a child in Junior High!! That scares the crap out of me, to think that in just a few short years I will be in the same boat as you. Believe me, I will be calling you for advice!!!

Is 6th Grade in Jr. High? I thought this whole time that Mikayla was one-year ahead of Hannah. Hannah is in 4th so I thought Mikayla would be going into 6th- I must be off. Or maybe it's different there? Here, Jr. High is 7th grade.

Either way- it's bad news.

I've always thought Jr. High was by far the hardest school years for kids to get through. I don't have any worries about Mikayla though. She's an amazing young women.

This is a big year for both of our oldest children. Young Mens/Young Womens, Jr. High, getting the Priesthood (for Christopher). When did it happen?

Don't blink because next it will be driving and dating.
