“Woohoo! Yeah!” (yelled at the top of his lungs)
This is my (newly) 8-year-old son’s reaction to his realization that tomorrow is Monday and there is school (Sudbury Valley School).
What joy this joy brings to his dad’s heart!
Not that he is always this totally pumped for school… he’s a home-body kinda kid, so “transition-time” can be difficult for him even, but he’s never particularly fussed once he gets in the mood and gathers his gear and projects he’s working on. And there’s never really been “Sunday-night-blues” (in anticipation of the coming week) to speak of with either of our kids.
But turning 8 means a few new “big kid” privileges and responsibilities at school, and he is excited and ready for them!
