And so it begins. The last week of school. I have been dreaming about this week for a couple of weeks. I long for the days of summer vacation when I don't have to wake up early and rush out the door to walk the kiddies to school.
The end of the school year activities began today. The kindergarten moms were invited to observe their kiddies while the teacher showcased some of the things they learned this year. Of course, Jack was the brightest and smartest. But if you ask the other moms, I'm sure they'll say the same thing about their child. (But we all know the real truth!)
There were no sad goodbyes, because today was only the last day of Jack's first year of kindergarten. In Mexico, children attend kindergarten for 2 or 3 years, depending on their age and/or date of birth.
That is when I came to a startling realization. Next school year will be Jack's last year of kindergarten. But it will also be mine. I have been taking my kiddies to that same kindergarten every day for 7 or 8 years. The Jardin de Niños has been such a huge part of my life for so long and it's almost over. Where did the time go? And who allowed my kiddies to grow up? Sigh!
