I can’t really talk about this anywhere else because everyone I know is still crossing fingers and checking mailboxes, but since a lot of you have watched AJ grow up in this space and its predecessor — I started blogging a few weeks before AJ started his first day of preschool at age 2 — I thought you’d like to know that AJ just got into high school.  Two of them, in fact, so far.  Not only did he get in, he earned six figures of scholarship money — one four-year free ride, one mostly covered.  Both are honors awarded very few kids.  I couldn’t be prouder for him and happier for him.  And while I’m positively horrified to realize he’s already headed to high school, I couldn’t be more excited for him.  And I can’t wait to see what comes next.  So congratulations, AJ Spy.  You are an amazing kid and I can’t wait to see the amazing adult you’re going to become.

    Congratulations, AJ Spy! I have been following your blogs from the beginning and watched AJ grow from a toddler into a real boy. This is very very cool news.

    This is so great! We’ve been watching each other’s kids grow up over the years and I’m also shocked to realize that high school is on the horizon. How did that happen! Many congrats to AJ. This is fabulous.

    I have a meeting next week to discuss high school course choices for my Pook. I’m sorry you have such a challenging system to navigate– I’ve got a good school two miles from me, although I’m still hoping to get him into the magnet/honors portion of it which is lottery based. Bug got in at 4th grade, hoping Pook gets in for 9th. Gulp. 9th. Freshman year. How did we let this happen to our boys? Everyone tells me that time just starts to speed up in high school too. I’m not ready.
    And, congrats to you all

    Congratulations AJ! High school? Already? It’s so true that the days are long but the years are short.
