Last Day of Kindergarten

Nine short months ago….

Today. (taken with my iPhone)

Is it just me or does he look like a giant?

To say someone was excited for his last day of school is an understatement. For me, of course, it’s bittersweet.

I tried to maintain my composure while I took one last look around at the kindergarten hallway. And then Thomas’ English teacher came up to me and told me what a joy it was to teach him this year and how she’ll remember our family all year as she looks at the photo desk calendar I gave to her as a gift for Christmas. And then I thanked her for being such a wonderful teacher. And that’s when we both lost it a little bit.

I shouldn’t be allowed to do the last day of school drop off. I’m far too emotional.
