This morning we drove Dex to Billings West High School AND THEN LEFT HIM THERE. I know that sounds stupid, but it didn't really sink in until we had to drive away, leaving all five-feet-ten of him looking awfully small and a bit lost.

I was thinking I was going to have the same experience all over again dropping Mik off at the middle school, but they had all the sixth-graders segregated from the terrifying seventh- and eighth-graders and lined up behind their teachers. A couple of his oh-about-four-foot-six friends broke loose from the throng to welcome him, and I was able to drive off feeling pretty okay that at least he's the right size for his new school.
