I'm not sure how it happened or when it happened but some how some where Jadon has grown up. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster. We got a letter from the school board saying we could move Jadon to a new school, due to the failing report of his current school. I stressed out about it. I wanted Jadon in a better school but worried about uprooting him from the circle of friends he had made this past year. He had grown si much socially over the last year. After a talk with my husband, mom, Jadon, and anyone else I could think of to get an opinion we decided to move him to the new school. The new school is 30 minutes away and he will have to take a bus (still not thrilled about that). Everything was hectic as many people took the chance to more their child as well. We didn't have a schedule, no one seemed to know what was going on. (the school board waited till the last minute and it left the schools scrabbling at the last minute) I was a wreck going into today. I was feeling unprepared, I felt like I wasn't able to prepare Jadon for what to expect at his new school. When we got to the school we met in the Office where they told Jadon what his 1st period class would be and that he would receive his schedule there. I wrote down the room number for him and when I went to give it to him he said "mom I got this". He didn't need me. He didn't need me to prepare him for this. He took all this last minute change like a champ. He didn't need me to navigate this new world for him. He was ready to take it on all by himself. So I backed off. Turned grabbed Jaxson's hand and walked back to my car. The whole time thinking when did he get so big.
I'm not sure what the day will bring. I'm not sure what happened after I left the school but I believe he's "Got this".
Yay! He's got this! I bet it was mixed emotions to hear him say that, but what a moment! He's taking ownership and was confident that he'd make his way to that first hour classroom:) I'm sure that last week was hard running around getting him settled and this huge decision that you've been contemplating for quite some time. It could take some getting used to and hoping that he's found a buddy to chat with on the bus ride to and fro. And exhale . . . a little.
Wishing you all a good first week and beyond,
That is so awesome!! So amazing that he is so confident. I hope he has an amazing school year. What a sigh of relief that he was ok with so much change so quickly.
Oh Sam...this is so bittersweet, isn't it? Yes, he's got this. But it's so hard to let go, when you've fought so hard for so long for every single little step forward. But you've prepared him for this, every single day of loving him his entire life has prepared him to stand up, to take control and to own this new school.
I'm so proud of him and of you for this moment, when he KNEW he had it and when you saw it too and let him go, even if only for a day, to figure it all out on his own.
He's totally got this.
So much love to you and Jadon (and Jaxson and Trinity, of course. :-) )
Such an amazing boy you raised!! I'm not there yet but everyday I marvel at how little by little Abbey doesn't need me as much anymore! I hope everything is going well this week, for both of you.
