since Doug and I were in youth group at church? I don't recall my first youth event but last night, I dropped off my "baby" at his. It was an odd feeling of letting him go. I didn't get out of the van to say good bye. He didn't hug or kiss me either. Some bittersweet feelings as I watched my firstborn head off with his friends, ready to face this next chapter in his life.
I remember many youth events... in fact, it was a Friday night (a football game to be specific) that I told a friend of mine that I wanted to date Doug. Who knew that asking him to be my date for my grad night would eventually lead us down the aisle into our marriage of now 14 years!
Anyhow, it was just an odd-like sensation bringing Joshua to something that I so clearly remember about my own growing up years. Maybe it made me just feel older. More grown up. How silly is that! Am I ready for junior high... I hope these are great years for him. Years of friends, growing and changing.
Wow. Junior high....
