As most of you know, this year the Gaston’s entered the new day of Middle School. Hannah, our oldest just began 6th grade at HH Poole. This is a new experience in our home with our baby girl entering this whole new realm of Middle School. Now she going to the bus stop earlier, changing classes during the day, learning how to work a locker.
The part that has bothered me the most in entering this new territory is the silence we are now getting at the end of the day. My ”chatty” little 5th grader is now answering with one word answers!
“How was your day, Hannah?”
“Don’t know” (Sometimes we get two word answers)
[Eye roll] (That is her mom’s favorite!!!!)
I have heard from others that we will survive these days. We have been instructed to keep asking, and keep talking even if it is one-sided for a season.
