Yesterday I got to watch my big girls graduation from Kindergarten! Not only that but I got to see the high school kids graduate as well. It was a bittersweet day as this will be our last time at the school I grew up in. The school I went to kindergarten at and graduated from.
5 years ago was Levi’s turn to graduate kindergarten. He grew immensely and for a while absolutely loved learning. Of course, once puberty hit that came to a screeching halt but he’s still got his smarts about him. He and Delylah had the same teacher. I have known him and his family since I was about Delylahs age. He has known my husband for just as long as well. Growing up in a small town you get to have special bonds and long lasting relationships with people that you wouldn’t get in a larger town or city. He is an amazing teacher and all the kids love him! Who wouldn’t want an upbeat, energetic, funny guy as their kindergarten teacher?
Look at that hair!
I remember when Levi began kindergarten and Delylah was just a wee baby. I couldn’t volunteer in his class because I had her. It was actually no different this year. Volunteering for Delylahs class was impossible as I chose to home school this year. But it all worked out for the best. She has separation anxiety. Levi had it when he was little too. Not to mention everything else going on in our lives right now. At some point, whether by choice or not, you’ve got to cut that cord and watch them grow! Delylah has had an amazing first year of school. She was named Miss Courageous by her teacher. She has overcome a lot and is still learning to take on the world as it gets tossed at her. A life lesson I am glad she is learning early on.
Going to high school graduation and having my kinder graduate and my soon to be 6th grader watching young adults begin the transition into the real world was also a bittersweet moment. Explaining to them that this is what it will be like someday for them and it was what it was like for me. Although, I remember my graduation being more up beat, probably because of the amazing group of kids we were.
My graduation and graduation 14 years later!!!
What a special day for all the graduates. Big and small! A moment in their lives they will cherish forever and never forget!
