Graduation Day

My Big First Grader.

Yesterday, Philip had his last day of Kindergarten.  My Little Guy isn't so little anymore.  He grows and grows quickly.

There's been a core group of about five of us, parents, who live in the neighborhood and walk our kids to school.  We all got a little choked up as our kids came out and we realized that they were done, and next year our babies were gonna be in school, First Grade, full-time.

It's been a good year.  We all started off a bit scared and apprehensive about how the children would handle it.

I can't believe my oldest is done with Kindergarten either. It's bittersweet.

dave's cousin lisa says: Phil I am right there with ya--- except it's my BABY who is going into first grade--- my youngest is a BIG BOY now!!!! WHOA that TOTALLY blows my mind- it was pretty overwhelming with the first one - but I had "the little guy" to fall back on- now I'm all out of "little guys" and am bringing up young men!!!!! :0

Over the summer, my oldest is boning up on her swear words so she won't feel left behind in first grade. The in-laws love it!

OMG!!! I remember picking up my sister from school there at Field and now she will be 30.
YEAH Philip, a big 1st grader and wow Phil what do you plan to do with only 2 kids at home. You might be able to go to the bathroom quickly before anyone notices.

Good lord, they're growing up fast, aren't they? As "Anonymous Blogger" said, "The days are long and the years are short."

Adam is starting high school in a little over a month. Remember when you came back from California and were shocked at how big he is? He weighs more than me now. And is a way better baseball player than I ever was.

I think that my friend and college roomie Garrett's mother was the Asst. Principal at Field back in the eighties.

It isn't how the kids will handle it that you have to worry about. Keep plugging away and before you know it they will put you in a nursing home and remind you of this day.
