First Day of High School
Well, it's here. Time marches on and Erin is off to high school. How did that happen?
Erin was a little bummed that she had to dress up today. Volleyball has a match tonight, so the team members all dress up on game day. Erin didn't really want to wear a skirt on the first day of school. She explained to me and Dan, "I'm going to look like a try hard." A "Try hard" is new terminology for us, but pretty self explanatory!
As Dan and I talked this morning he asked if I was sad at all. Yes and no. So strange to be visiting new territory, a stage that Shannon never reached. And yet, Erin is happy and excited, so we should be, too. And we are.
As I was taking the above picture, Dan was taking a picture of me. And capturing a little sign from above:
Hard to deny that Shannon is with us. Go get 'em Smiley...
