Kindergarten Grad

Look at us.... the proud parents of a five year old Kindergarten Graduate!!!! Yep, she did it... she learned her ABC's, she can count to a gazillion, she's reading War and Peace just for fun. This was a proud moment in our lives, our youngest is about to move on to First Grade, to life outside the warm, loving confines of the little school she's attended for two years. She'll move on to days without naps, days of having more than just a couple of teachers, she'll go to the science room and the music room for lessons. There'll be PE, actual proper PE, no more riding tricycles!!!!!

Having a kid is a real instrument of measurement, without her milestones would I just let time slip by unnoticed in front of me? These are precious days, days to be savored and remembered, days to capture ourselves on film so we can look back and say... awwww!

'Tis the season for graduation, new beginnings and fresh starts... what's your story????

I've never thought of it quite that way, but I suppose kids do mark the passage of time don't they? I am reminded of how fast I have gotten so old whenever I cross paths with a little one whom I haven't seen in a while who is no longer little.

Congrats on your little girl taking strides to the next adventure in her life.
