Last year I posted a few times about issues with school. Today I have a happy post...(sorry if it is a little obnoxious to be so happy.)
It is my children's last day of school today (2nd grade). They teared up on the way to school because they do not want it to be over. (I'm sure they will be thrilled and excited once they get home tonight. Plus we're getting together with their class next Friday to go for a morning hike. That made them less sad about today.) We had such a wonderful year; but it went by so quickly. I am so happy that they could experience this. Last year was sometimes alright and sometimes horrible. Having a year with one day of crying - on the last day - rather than days of crying throughout the year, made our entire life better (inside and outside of school). Having happy mornings and stress-free evenings this year was wonderful. No school is perfect and I know it can change year-to-year, but I would be thrilled if they have more great school years and wonderful teachers like they had this year.
