The 8th graders took their panoramic class picture today. This is always the first part of a really fun time for them, as they get ready for their last trimester of middle school and look forward to high school. It was fun seeing them all standing there with their class shirts on, having fun with each other, without a care in the world. The older they get the more responsibility and pressure will be put on them and they don’t even know it. But for now, they’re kids. Plain and simple. I watched them, knowing that in a few months I’ll be the one with tears in my eyes as I say goodbye to them.
