The Last Day...

This was the first day of school
Today is the last day of kindergarten for my sweet Prince and Princess.  It is so hard to believe that the year has come and gone.  When I first left them, Princess cried every day for several weeks, making me feel like a bad Mommy for leaving.  Prince was just so spontaneous that I never knew what to expect when I went to pick them up.  Prince is still spontaneous and I still don't know what he'll say or come up with, but he is growing.  Their sweet teacher Miss J has done a great job with them.  They have blossomed and learned so much.  She did for them what I had hoped could be done...she met them where they were and accepted their imperfections.  She guided them and gave them grace to be who they are, yet not letting them get away with things they shouldn't.  They are reading, writing, adding, counting money...little people and they are growing up before my very eyes.  I am looking forward to this summer and having more time with my favorite two little people, but I am going to miss their teacher terribly.  She has been such a blessing in our lives.  I have already begun praying for their teachers next year.  I know God will go before us and make things right according to His purpose and plan. 
Tonight there will be a special little graduation ceremony at the school.  I am trying very hard not to get emotional.  I'm not really succeeding with this effort.  It's so hard to see my babies grow up, but I am trying to enjoy every single solitary moment of it, for I know it goes by too quickly.  I am reminded daily of the many blessings I have to celebrate...they are too many to count.
