My boy had Freshman Orientation on Friday. He was there from 8-2.
My boy was "22% nervous and 78% excited."
My boy made a bunch of new friends, "Mom, I have all their phone numbers in my phone."
My boy ate lunch in the cafeteria, and ate what they were serving just like everyone else.
My boy knows all the women that work in the cafeteria (they used to work at his grade school). One of them asked me on Friday, "Will Big Bird be in his locker?" She remembers him from the days he looked like the picture above. NECBM of that.
My boy figured out where he was supposed to go and got there. "Mom, they gave me a schedule and it had all the room numbers on it, so I just looked up and found the rooms."
My boy fell asleep at his regular time today and got up at his regular time, meanwhile, I didn't sleep a wink last night, too busy trying to open his locker (unsuccessfully) all night in my dreams.
My boy hopped in his sister's car and drove off with her for his first real day today.
My boy didn't even ask if I would take him and get him to his room the first day.
My boy has plans for after school - we are going to the see his "girlfriend" play volleyball and help out in the Snack Shack.
