The Graduate

I guess the biggest thing I have to talk about is that Captain Comic 'graduates' from elementary school on Monday.  Makes me a little misty, but mostly just think how in so many ways he is ready for middle school. I am concerned how he'll do, especially since he seems more nervous about bullies and more homework than excited about the growing up process.   Speaking of more homework, he was recommended for advanced placement for 6th grade English and Math. 

Gotta love the incongruities in Asperger's:  He's now AP and SPED.  But as long as he has his SPED accommodations in place, he is a very successful and smart student.  When they're not in place, he's hanging from doorframes screaming for the authorities.

I'm going to be a blubbery mess on Monday around 1:30pm, I just know it. 

Time to buy stock in Kleenex.


  1. oh it's so bittersweet isn't it? Daisy starts school in September and I'm already a mess! Good luck.

  2. oh yes, the first one heading to school....i remember it well. this is a little different as i've been at this a while (oldest is fisihing freshman year of high school), but all these ceremonies get me, even when it's not my kid!

  3. He sounds like a bright and interesting kid -- my favorite kind. Congrats on the milestone!

  4. thanks, lisa, he certainly is that!
