“You really are a wonder, Auggie. You are a wonder.”
Summer went by so fast. Now the first day of 6th grade arrived. I had to admit, even though I knew my friends from last year would be there, the thought of starting all over again made me sick to my stomach. I’m pretty sure Mom and Dad was nervous too. I could hear their jitters from my room.
I walked out into the kitchen to Mom making some pancakes.
“Would you like to have a bite before you leave, sweetie?” Mom asked as she flipped the pancakes.
“Sure Mom, but just a quick bite. I promised Jack we would go to our homeroom together, and I don’t want to be late!”
I looked at the time and it was already 745am, and school started at 810am. Mom didn’t let me take the bus on the first day, because she said, she wanted to take me. My mom just worries way too much. This year will be so much fun. I have Jack, Summer, and plenty of other friends from my old school to hang out with.
I quickly threw my plates into the sink and grabbed my backpack.
“Mom let’s go!” I yelled, walking out the door.
I got into the car and waited. She opened the door, sat down, and on our way we went.
“Okay Auggie this is it.” She said.
“Mom this isn’t like last year. I got this.”
“I know, I know, Sweetie. Just have a good day.” She said kissing me on my forehead.
I got out of the car, and headed towards the main double doors. I walked in and saw hundreds of kids walking left to right, and right to left. Across form was the library, where I told Jack I would meet him. I scanned the scattered area for him. Nope, nope, not him, oh- there he is.
He also saw me and said, “Hey Auggie! Over here!” waving his hand.
Standing next to him was, Summer. Long, blonde hair, sweet Summer. She was the girl who was the first to sit down at lunch with me. I smiled, waved my hands, and made my way over to them.
“Hey guys! How was your summer?” I asked.
“Good,” they both said, smilingly.
“What did you over the summer, Summer?” I giggled...
