OMG, I just dropped Alex off for his first day of high school and I am so nervous!  I really thought I was doing okay with it, but it really hit me this morning.  It was so much easier for me when Lucas started HS because I felt like he had a much bigger support network and lots of friends who were in the same boat.  It would be easier if Alex's BFF's were there with him, but they are a grade below him.  He does have a couple of friends at the HS, but I feel like they're just a couple of little fish swimming around in a very big pond, and who knows if they'll even find each other.  It doesn't help that he seemed so much more nervous about the whole thing than I thought he would be.  He seemed very concerned about the schedule and what time he needed to be where and when he would be able to stop at his locker and such.  I hope he figures it all out okay!  Fingers crossed!
