If they would have just called it “last day of school” I would have been fine, but of course they have to call it “Preschool Graduation” so naturally I was a crying mess. I was pregnant with Sam when I took Tanner to his first day of preschool 2 1/2 years ago and I cried then. We’ve been preparing for this day for 2 1/2 years and it’s still hard for me to stomach that he’s going to be a Kindergartener, and then the next thing you know he’s off to college or getting married. I said to myself last night that in 10 years (and 2 months) I’m going to have a 16 year old and I can’t handle it. The years fly by now and someone put it best when they said that at this age that the kids are the days are long but the years go by so fast. It’s completely true.
Anyway, so we have a graduate now and I feel confident that he is as ready as he’ll ever be for Kindergarten, and I’m so excited for his journey.
