Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well yesterday was the start to a new school year for four of my siblings. It was a pretty big day, as three of them were starting in a new school.
I think that the most touching change was seeing my little sisters get on the big bus to go to kindergarten. They were so excited, holding hands with their little sister on the walk up to the bus, and clutching to each other as they waited on line to board. It was really sweet to see how ready they were for their new adventure, and it was equally as sweet to see how they tried to explain their first day of school (did they learn anything? Who knows, but they had fun playing!).
Watching all of my siblings on their first day of school reminds me of how excited I used to be for school to begin each year, and it also makes me feel really proud as a big sister. Alright, it also makes me feel pretty old… My little brother started middle school, and I realized that I was in his position ten years ago. In some ways, it seems like 6th grade was forever ago, but at the same time I can’t believe that ten whole years have gone by.
How do you feel when younger siblings experience a major milestone in life? Tell me in the comments!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
