|I am going to miss my bright, happy classroom!|
The Dr. Seuss quote is one of my all-time favorites.
That frame rests on my mantel,
reminding me to remain in the moment
and not mourn the days that have passed.
in the last sentence!)
While navigating the crazy demands of the last few school days,
I didn't think I'd cry in the final moments of kindergarten.
But I did.
I read "Wave".
In the final illustration, the little girl waves goodbye to the ocean.
I closed the book and calmly stated,
"And now it is time for us to say goodbye."
Then I burst into tears.
Quickly, I gathered the children into a circle
for a final prayer and the friendship hand squeeze.
The tears flowed again with
"Dear God, thank you for my kindergartners!".
I knew I had prayed the bare minimum when my lil guy said,
"Wow. That was short."
My funny, chatty, dramatic, loving class of 2012
will always have a place in my heart.
This group will be hard to top! :-)
Summer....here I come!
