Ode to Kindergarten

First day of Kindergarten (September 2018)


It seems like only yesterday, was when I first arrived

A nervous face on the first day with wonder in my eyes

We learned about each other and how to be polite

Social studies, science, math and how to read and write.

I met so many friends this year

And every single day, we share and laugh and try to care in every single way

With all the things I’ve learned this year, A favorite’s hard to choose

But, will always remember this and pass it on to you

If I’m kind and do my best, there’s nothing I can’t do

I’ll work hard, reach for the stars with love and help from you

And if I believe that I can be brilliant as I grow

The happiest me is what you’ll see everywhere I go

Ready to ZOOM to 1st grade!






Bye Bye Spring, Hello Summer

Like that. In a blink of an eye. School is out. Summer is on the horizon. It is hard to believe that my last entry here was 4 months ago. It has been a busy 4 months, but a good busy and a memorable busy.

This Spring we continued to grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. I have to consistently remind myself they are 5 (and a half). What I think they may be able to handle and navigate, may still be too much. Therefore, Mom is continuing to grow mentally, emotionally and socially, too.

Here’s a snapshot of our fun moments this last Spring…

Dance Parties and Performances

Outdoor Adventures, Parades and Trips to the Zoo


Impromptu Photo Shoots


Family Yard Work and Gardening


New Goggles


Lots of Arts and Crafts

And a Target Run or Two
