It's here! It's today!! What with end of year sports parties and school happenings, it's sort of felt like the last day of school for a week.
I attended the Kindergarten graduation and picnic yesterday with Child #2. The children were given their memory books. I tried not to cry and was thankful for my sunglasses. On our way home from school Child #2 had a secret he needed to tell me.
"I hope I get Josie in my class again next year," he whispered. Child #2 has had a yearlong, widely publicized crush on the lightly freckled and completely adorable Josie.
"Me too," I said but all I could think is First Grade! He's going to be a First Grader next year! Again, I was thankful for my sunglasses.
Today I'll be going to the Third Grade "Coffee House". I've quoted the words Coffee House because poetry, as opposed to coffee, will be served. My invitation, prepared for me by Child #1, specified that I wear "Black Dress." I'm pretty sure the teacher's vision is for the kids to come in beat 50's black. I'm equally certain that Child #1 has her eye on a specific black dress in my closet so I may be a bit overdressed.
