7th grade-welcome to middle school

All of a sudden you are in middle school.
7th grade
 April of this year you weighed 80 lbs.
Four months later you weigh 105lbs.
When did that happen?


Looking at your schedule.
Spanish
Pre-Algebra
Robotics
Changing classes.
Locker combinations, dressing out in gym class.

You eat 24/7.
Pizza and cheeseburgers are your favorite.
You eat pringles by the can. If we let you.
You are your own person.
Highly analytical, imaginative and extremely sarcastic.
You love XBOX, piano, your new MP3 and watching movies.
You are the only 11 year old movie buff I know.
You can quote movies that you saw years ago.


It's tough for me to see you grow up so fast.
You ask me to "please stop being dramatic"
and run back in the house before your friends see me
taking your 1st day of school pics.
Plus you have to get to the bus stop on time.
Lucky for you,
the bus stop is right in front of our house.
You will be glad about that when it starts snowing.
You see your friend, Angelo,


already waiting there so you are ready to go.
On your way
to your first day of
middle school.
You're ready, even if we're not.
Happy first day of 7th grade to Dylan!

Oh my gosh, he gained that much in 4 months and still is skinny as a rail?! That boy is growing like a weed.

We start middle school in 6th grade down here. I wish it were 7th.

What a wonderful tribute post! And to think, I just can't believe my oldest is in 5th. He already runs from my camera when anyone is around.
