Since they were little, I’ve tried to send myself an email whenever one of our boys has one of those moments. You know, the kind that makes you laugh or just roll your eyes and wonder ‘did we leave the hospital with the wrong kid?’
And sometimes, well, sometimes it’s just something you want to remember.
Blake – 15 years, 4 months
Both boys went back to school today for the first time in a year since quarantine started. Before they left, I gave them a challenge. When I was in 10th grade, I transferred schools and went the entire first day without lunch because I didn’t want to sit alone in the lunch room. Since it was their first day back, I told them there would probably be kids in a similar spot and they should reach out and sit with them.
As luck would have it, I was headed back from an errand and drove past the high school and happened to see Blake sitting at a picnic table eating with a kid wearing a red shirt.
I texted him when I got home and the following was our exchange:
Go. See. Be. Do.
