And this delightful, amazing girl is attending her very last kindergarten class today. I've held it together so far, but it hasn't been easy. She has had such an amazing year! Her teacher and behaviorist were both fabulous! She learned so much from them. She was in a class of kids who were generally nice and accepting of her. They liked her and accepted her completely, oddities and all! I'm a little sad that she'll be leaving this warm, safe environment to go to the unknown of a new teacher, higher demands, and more homework.
The main reason why I'm a little teary-eyed, however, is that this year went by crazy-fast. It really feels like she had her first day of kindergarten yesterday! How did the year zoom by like this? I feel like I'm going to blink my eyes, and then she'll be going off to Harvard to quadruple major in paleontology, premed, pre-law, and physics.
I hope time slows down, but experience has taught me that it goes by faster and faster with each passing year. Enough, I say! Slow down while she's in elementary school! You can start to speed up again when she's 12 years old! Thanks!
