Good bye, Hello

aaaahhh....the bittersweet moments in raising your kids.

I don't want to rush things.......but when I'm in the thick of it, there are days I can't wait for the next "level".......a little more independence.......not so reliant on me.

Then I want to burst into tears at the fact that another year has gone by and they don't need me as much and are growing up to be so independent. 

Waaaaa! 

What a year! I couldn't have asked for Emily's K year to be more special. A wonderful teacher, a great class, and she simply enjoyed herself. I was library Mom on Wednesdays.......please be sure to check out my award.  

William had a "rocky" start to his year --- he had a lot to catch up on (in preschool terms), but by the end, I have to give the little guy credit --- he did an amazing job. I think he misses the routine of school and his buddies the most!  

It was a year of hard work, new routines and major achievements! 

Good Bye lovely preschool and hello First Grade for Emily and Kindergarten for William!
