And they’re off!

Today marks a milestone in the educational career of my son.  He and his classmates are moving to middle school.  His school does things a little differently, in that 5th graders are in middle school with the 6-8th graders.  They get to experience lockers and noisy hallways, class changes with different people in them, and the dreaded dress out for PE.  Art and music play a large role in 5th grade, as they have band/orchestra, chorus, AND traditional art each week.  Stricter dress codes.  More freedom.  More responsibilities.

I’m all for it.
