Well it is here. His last day.
I know there are still many more "first" days of school and "last" days of school to come, but it something about the loss of part-time schooling for full-time "gone" that gets me.
But, I will choke it back down.
I was asked to take pictures of the kids today (which I can't post, because they are a surprise), so I got more than just a small glimpse into the last day festivities.
When I arrived I was told they were in the gym practicing for tomorrow's graduation ceremony. Well, I didn't want to even see or hear a second of that. I have decided the longer I stay in denial about the whole thing, the longer my eyes stay un-puffed.
So, I waited in the classroom.
I hung out while they ate snack, and then we went and did graduation pictures. I have never been asked to be the photographer for something--so, you can imagine my relief when I looked back at the photos and they were some of the best I have ever taken! I can't wait to share Thomas' as well!
The old playground was dug up a few weeks ago, and was supposed to be done today. It looks like it will be done for Friday though, and the kids can play for their 1 hour of school.
***The calendar says that Friday is the last day of preschool, but I am counting today as it was an actual day of preschool. Friday we drop them off at 9 and meet them in the gym at 10 for a magic show and lunch**
