Watch out.....Corey's been emotional. Yup....it's true. It's been a bit of an emotional week. I'm a loser when it comes to anything remotely sad. It will grab me by the throat and squeeze silly tears out of my baby blues. It can be so embarrassing.
Can't say I'm alone in this though. Seeing your baby finish up their Kindergarten year can affect many a parent with the same misty-eyed affliction. However, it really wasn't the fact that my Sugar Bear was moving to a new grade that really got me. It was the fact that this particular school would not be seeing another set of Kindergartners. After 55 years of service it is closing it's doors. This......just gets me. :( You should have seen me blubbering at the end of the day when the 4th grader's all got a chance to ring the old school bell out in front of the school. Yeah.....it was touching.
It may have taken Sugar Bear nearly 7 months to grow accustom to this school, but she really is sad to see it go. Thinking back on her first day of Kindergarten will always remind me of all the wonderful people I met this year.
I have much sadness for loss of this school. Many families have seen their children walk up these steps each morning. I, for one, will miss this sight.
And Sugar's teacher....she was so good to us. I feel blessed that we were among the last to have THIS teacher at THIS school. Good memories, for sure. Looking at these pictures has been interesting. I don't know about you....but I don't see a ton of physical growth from the first and last day of school, but oh my.....my girl has grown. It has been such a treat to watch her first elementary school experience.
