Back to School

This month's EtsyBlogger's Blog Carnival is about back to school memories.  Yesterday my 16 year old son went back to public school for the first time since second grade.  I felt both anxious and melancholy all day.  I pulled my son out of public school at the end of second grade because he was having a great deal of difficulty learning to read and the school system really had no answers for his problem.  We home-schooled from 3rd grade until 8th and in 9th and 10th grades he did cyber school.  A mutual family decision was made that public high school would be the best for his last 2 years of school. 

I know my son was both nervous and excited when he left yesterday morning to go to school.  Fortunately I had a very busy day of work, otherwise I would have probably sat around worrying all day.  I sort of felt the same way a parent feels when they first send their kid to kindergarten.  When he finally got home in the afternoon I was relieved to hear he had a pretty good day.
