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.

Hope your son has a good start to high school!

My YDD is also an "only" for the first time.   Her sister went off to college 4 days ago.  Though it is quiet- it also is kind of nice.  There is NO bathroom drama.  And car rides- are QUIET LOL. 

I'm sure dd misses her sister. 

And no, I really didn't have a hard time either.  I feel like "it's time".  And so far she's ok.

How exciting!! And lots of fun stuff to distract you from missing dd, right?  :smileyhappy:  It's awesome that he is finding activities in HS; it will really help him enjoy his time there!
