High Five for Farewells (5.26.17)

Yesterday Will finished elementary school. I can hardly type that sentence without bursting into tears, as it feels like just yesterday I walked him through the front doors of his elementary school and delivered him to his kindergarten classroom for the first time.

For me, the baby and toddler years - for both of my children, but more so in Will's case - moved at a glacial pace. The preschool years passed by a bit more quickly, but the elementary school years? I blinked and found myself at the finish line.

1st Day of 3rd Grade
1st Day of 4th Grade
Will begins intermediate school in less than three months, and I have no doubt those days and weeks and months will fly by more quickly than I'd like. I feel nothing but proud of the incredible young man Will is becoming, but what I wouldn't give to hold onto these big little boy years for just a while longer. 
End of Kinder
End of 1st Grade
End of 2nd Grade

End of 4th Grade
Sweet may feel like an ending, but it is also the beginning of your next beautiful and exciting adventure. You can handle whatever comes your way as long as you remember to work hard, to be kind, and that your mama loves you.
