First Day of School, 2013

Truth, Justice and the American Way. And also, ninth grade.

Athena is officially in high school now, which is a little strange to think about but also pretty exciting. As I joked on Twitter, now I officially have to start worrying about college. Here’s a secret about that: I’m not actually that worried. And anyway, I’d rather have Athena focused on the here and now. She’s excited for the first day of school, as she usually is. I like that about her.

On a related note, it’s odd to think that around this time thirty years ago, I was starting my own freshman year in high school. It really doesn’t seem that long ago, and also, it does.
