First, he is an only child for a while as we dropped dd off at college.  They are quite close, even though he is stoic, I am sure he misses her knowing she is gone for a long time.  I was fine, trust me I fell apart and Kindergarden, but no issues with college!?!?!  Daddy, though, was much more sad. 

Then, he is starting High School!!  Wow!! 

Third, he is playing high school football.  He played peewee ball before, but this is much tougher.   He has a lot of friends on his team.  He loves his coach and may try wrestling too.

It sounds like a year of adjustment for all of you! High school is such a big step. I"m sure he'll have a blast playing football with his friends. Keep us posted on how he's doing with all the changes this year!

That is a lot of change all at once -- for him and for you!  I actually got butterflies in my stomach reading about you dropping your dd off at college, because we will be there with Lucas in only 2 years.  The time goes too quickly!  I hope both of your kids have great freshman years!
