Yesterday afternoon all three kindergarten classes got together and presented a little concert for their parents, got certificates, and then there was cake.
Itâ€™s the boy’s last day of kindergarten today:
It seems like only yesterday that he was off to school for the first time…
Iâ€™m a wee bit wistful, and tremendously proud. His teacher told us his reading skills were far beyond his grade level (which doesnâ€™t surprise us, because we read to him all the time, and he will read any text he can; if we put cereal boxes on the table heâ€™d read them, but we donâ€™t, so he reads things like CD spines and flyers that come in the mail and the company information on passing trucks as well as books). Heâ€™s doing addition and subtraction, things I didnâ€™t grasp until the middle of grade one, and, perhaps most of all, I am proud of the thoughtful, sensitive little citizen heâ€™s become.
