It has been a school year without CRISIS

In two days my son will say good-bye to Kindergarten. My BOY with the golden hair, sweet smile and eyes the color of corn flowers. He will race into summer, arms flung wide, face uplifted to the sun, legs moving. He is an explorer, my boy, and summer beckons with the lure of adventure ahead.

It's been a good year for BOY. We are blessed to have had a school that not only allows him to shine, but encourages it. It has been a school year without CRISIS. There have been some challenges, some ups and downs ...but, we're ending the year on a high note.

The BOY who had a speech delay is reading at a mid-second grade level. The BOY who struggled to hold a pencil is writing short sentences. The BOY who has had no interest in drawing is creating some kick ass art work...when he wants to.

He continues to entertain us with the stories he weaves from his imagination. Someday I hope he'll write them down.

So, we close another door. But, I can't wait to see what's behind the next one...

  1. There's always a next door--and it's always so exciting.

  2. I worked in 3 first grade classes last year. They were delightful. He will blossom.

  3. First grade is so much fun! I hope it will be just as crisis free and rewarding for him.

  4. Yay! Any time without crisis is a good time.

    He was always meant to shine. It only gets better...

  6. I am so glad that you finally found a place that treasures BOY for who he is, and allows him to shine!
