I know you probably won't remember me.
But I don't mind.
I'm going to miss you terribly but I'm happy for you too. It's amazing to me, how much a person can grow in just 10 months! Where did the months go? My how much you've changed since September! When we first met, you thought you might like me...time passed and you decided I was safe. Now I feel like you love me as much as I loved you that first day. And the idea of not seeing you each day makes me teary. It's hard to imagine you along side "the big kids" at "the big school". But I know in my heart you'll be better than fine and I feel proud. It's comforting for me, to know the people you will join:
some of your future classmates who were once my students too, and your future teachers and care givers who are some of my dearest and most trusted friends.
And of course, you are ready to go. It's time to leave the Nest.
Your parents are so blessed and we all know it too, there's never been, and there will never be again, a child just like you.
Thank you for choosing me, for feeling safe and free. Watching you grow has taught me so much you'll never know.
And even though you may not remember me,
I'll never ever forget you ~ each one of you ~
and you'll always be with me. In my heart.
Thank you for a wonderful school year: Ella Bea, Maddie, Josie, Marley, Jane, Adler, Scarlett, Dana, Amelia, Oliver, Quinn, James, and Cole.
With love and in PEACE,
