Today is officially the kid's favorite day of the year.
The Last Day of School!!!!
To them, it's been a long time coming,
To me, it's gone by too fast.
I helped out with refreshments at the 5th graders graduation today
and while watching the children march in,
I got teary eyed thinking about how Brayden will be doing that next year.
At a new school.
Without all of his friends from this school.
And the tears slowly started.
It's really hard saying goodbye to a school that has been so wonderful.
I'm sure there are friends in SC just waiting to be met,
but just for today, I'm a little sad for the friends that will be left behind.
I didn't really intend to be so depressing,
it really is a cheery day.
No more homework.
No more projects.
No more tests.
Days lounging about at the pool.
No early bedtimes.
Ice cream runs at 9:00 at night.
So, let me end on a positive note....
Gracie & Brayden,
Mommy & Daddy are very proud of all of your accomplishments.
You are two very intelligent and well-rounded people.
You have worked very hard this year and I can't
wait to see what's in store for 5th and 2nd grades.
Enjoy your summer!
