Yesterday was the 100th day of school. Gage is halfway done with kindergarten. It's kind of overwhelming for me to think about, because for some reason first grade seems so much older to me than kindergarten. By first grade, you're a seasoned pro. Anyway, I received an email from Gage's teacher (the day before) the 100th day, encouraging the kids to dress up like they thought a 100 year old would to help celebrate. I had never heard of this before, but upon googling it, it looks like a fairly common occurrence.
So Gage and I rambled through the closets and put together a last minute outfit. (He kind of looks like the lovechild of that old man from Up and a hobo. But don't tell him I said that.) I was just excited that he wanted to participate. I'm all for dressing up.....Gage is not.
You know, I've actually always been able to see Gage as an old man. Even as a baby there was something 'old' about him. And now, even his personality often reminds me of some crazy old man.
