This afternoon is the groundbreaking for our new school, and despite the balloons on and around the tractors and 'diggers' out in the fields, it feels like a sad day to me! Change is hard for me! And as I sat in on the meetings with architects over the last year or so, it was hard to accept how wonderful the new open concept plan, the bright light-filled rooms, the learning centers and collaboration hallways would be when I already have so many sweet memories of this (admittedly) old building.
When we first moved to Logan, we'd drive by this way and I'd point across the field to 4-year-old Landon in the backseat - "that's where you're going to go to school next year!" On his first day of kindergarten, I had this image in my mind of walking Landon to school, but then I could only leave the kids for so long with Jordan on his lunch break so we drove partway and parked just a block or so from the school so I could walk him that last block! 2 1/2 hours later, I stood outside the kindergarten doors with the other parents, feeling very much like my own first day of school as I started out this new part of life as a mom of school-aged children!
It will be an interesting few years for these kiddos -- we'll have a year of construction (starting now -those fields are just about to be completely fenced off for crews to begin!) then a year in the new building with another school using the old building (while their school is rebuilt), then (the part the kids are excited for, wrecking balls and all!) a farewell to this old building!
