Well, the year is over. Ace is finished with Kindergarten! I know I say it all the time but I just can’t believe how quickly the time goes. My boy is going to be a first grader!
It’s amazing to look at photos from the beginning of the year until now. He really did grow up right before my eyes. He went from crying every morning to bringing Gaki and his pet rock to school with him to arguing with me that he couldn’t miss school when he was sick because he’d miss out on all the fun.
I’m so grateful for the awesome group of teachers that he had. They made all the difference. Even though it’s still difficult for me to let him go each day, I do find comfort in knowing he’s having a great time and learning so much.
We had a year full of learning and I pray that is the case every year. We both learned a little more about being an Orthodox Christian in a secular world and had the opportunity to share parts of our Faith with people who never heard of the Orthodox church. We grew through little life lessons and mistakes and it was truly wonderful.
That being said…LET SUMMER BEGIN!!
