So He Went to School

This morning while my wife and daughter were asleep, myIMG00226-20100423-1954 middle son, Skippy, wrote a note and left the house. 

He got on his bus and went to school, leaving everyone asleep in the house.  For some reason I have been laughing about this all day.  This has never happened before. 

Our house is usually bustling with lunch making panic and hunting for shoes.  But this morning, I was at work, Firstborn was already at school and Holly and Pinkerbelle overslept.

I wonder what this 9 year old was thinking.  “The house is quiet, my mom is asleep, my sister is asleep.  I guess I will  just head off to school.”

ff I’m proud that he took personal responsibility and got himself ready, made his lunch, wrote a note and got on the bus on time.  But the 9 year old boy in him said “Who cares my sister misses the bus.”  “Mom’s asleep, whatever, I’ll leave a note.”

And he went.
