Take Time with Transitions!
Today was my son Tyler’s last day of kindergarten. The gravity of this event seems to have totally escape his attention. My husband’s too. I however have been close to tears all day. Ok, more than close a few times!
It’s incredible to me that my son could be finished kindergarten! Ready to go to full-day first grade in a few short months. Where did the time go? I look at Tyler–so tall, so confident, so independent, and I wonder what happened to the tiny, baby who wanted to be held all of the time.
I’m happy that he’s not sad to leave kindergarten behind. He’s striding into summer, and I know he’ll be happy to go to first grade. But I need to take a little time today to celebrate the end of kindergarten and reflect on what a big change this is. Pizza and ice cream anyone?
