Riding the school bus and attending school were firsts for him today, in all of his fourteen years.
I watched a happy, confident, always unschooled young man leap onto the bus with a smile and a wave of his hand my way.
Last year I would have cried, actually, last year I did cry when he told me he was thinking about going to school. But I have grown this past year and have realized it's not about me, it's about him and what he wants in his life, and I am here to support him in each and every endeavor.
I felt happy and excited as I watched the bus drive away because I know HE is happy about embarking on this new adventure.
School will be a journey, as is all of life. He knows he can leave at any time if he feels it is not the right place for him.
I would like to blog his journey with school here, that is, if he doesn't mind. I will have to ask him :)
It is a happy day!
May his journey be graced with love and joy for all his subjects and fellow teachers and students. cheers Marie
I truly wish you and he a journey that is happy and fulfilling.
I wish you both all good things along this new path! All learning is good learning, not matter how you get there!
That's a tough day! But what a gift you've given him in allowing him the freedom to choose his life and live it as he fills into his little wings! Wishes for both of you - happiness overflowing!

Welcome back. I've missed you. It's great to see how you support your boy. It's wonderful that he felt so confident to make that decision. I can hardly wait to hear of his adventures. Be well and here's to a fulfilling journey.
