hesitation and locks

our oldest daughter about to start high school – 2 days to go.

i remember my first day as if it was yesterday – running to the bus with Kimmi

first Langbehn at Lewis and Clark since 1949, made my dad so proud

School was my haven, my place to escape in books, and people watching and making mistakes

Gary taught me how to unlock lockers Right – the Left past the number then Right

my daughter comes to me – I always have to ask someone else she says

we buy a lock and sit on the bed and practice, first me R, L past, R

she is unsure at first – try clockwise, then counter … no no too hard

then a the light bulb goes on – oh I get it.. and she does it 3 times for me – no problem

first it’s padlocks next it will be driving lessons
