Final 120 Days

Ended it where it began

Yesterday i ended where i began – sitting on the bench outside the High School office overlooking the courtyard.
“My bench” as i affectionally named it freshman year (2015).

Yesterday, ended it where it began.

The first month of our Son’s High School freshman year something happened.

He (we) found himself with the discovery that making friends with people you didn’t grow up with was harder than it looked.

One of the things i did was arrive 30-60 minutes earlier than our scheduled daily pickup time.

i’d sit outside the High School counselor’s office and watch the world go by.

It was an attempt to familiarize myself with the “landscape” of after-school karma.

In hindsight, my new business (post Disney career) was slow and i had discretionary time.

Bottom line, the time on that bench was valuable because i met many teachers and staff and built relationships with them, becoming an after school fixture, a familiar face, an involved (concerned) parent.

One of the best investments a parent could ever make.
