Last Day

ok - how come no one ever told me today was going to be hard? Yes, everyone talks about how sad the first day of kindergarten is, but what about the last day? This morning I walked the boys up to the school. Gavin always kisses and hugs me good-bye. Caleb, however, tells me bye in the car. I think he is already a little embarased of me! Anyway, this morning Caleb walked away and then turned back to me and wanted a hug and a kiss. I think he realized that this was the last day. I walked away with tears in my eyes. After today they will never be in kindergarten again!!!

I went back up to the school for the boys Awards Ceremony. Caleb got an award for Class Cut-up. Mrs. Lee tells me stories all the time about the funny things he does in class. Gavin got the art award..... very proud of both of them.

When we were leaving school, I noticed C & G were quiet in the backseat. I turned around and noticed that Gavin had tears streaming down his face. I pulled over and he crawled into my lap just bawling. I knew exactly what was wrong, because he is so much like me. He explained to me that he was worried that his friends would not be back next year or not be in his class. It is now 5:15 and he is still talking about how sad he is about summer being here and not seeing his friends everyday. What a little sweetheart! On a happier note, Caleb is signing "school's out," without a care in the world.......

Oh what a sweet story! Bless his heart! It's funny how you can have all these children and their little personalities be totally opposite!

That is so sweet. It is so hard to see them grow up and have these feelings, they have such sweet hearts.
