I am not sure I ever envisioned this day. Can you believe she is headed to middle school? I am a little excited, a little fearful, anxious and worried, expectant and determined. She is a great kid. She will be a fabulous teenager.
Our school held a little graduation ceremony for them They had a performance that night in which they reenacted their years of elementary school. It was a great trip down memory lane and their humor is hysterical. Most of the kids wore their tie dye t-shirts they made earlier in the Spring.
After the performance they gave each of the kids a certificate of completion and we ate cake!
Some of these kids have been friends since kindergarten. I really believe they'll be friends when they graduate.
One thing I don't have is any doubt that it will be a wild ride. :)
