So, Big Girl is Moving on Up…to the Middle School. *dun*dun*DUN*
She had her Moving Up ceremony last night, and made her parents very proud. She won an Academic Excellence Award, and she was one of about fifteen kids recognized for their character….very cool! (This was the last full day of school, the rest will be half days leading up to the last next Tuesday. I swear each year passes by faster than the last.)
I find it hard to believe that I have a child entering the Middle School. It seems like she was just hopping off to Kindergarten! But, I refuse to mourn the stages passed, and I enjoy her company more with each passing year, so I look forward to watching her grow into this new phase of her childhood. I do look ahead with a fearful eye though, knowing that the next few years will be a test of choices for her, and a test of patience for me.
To honor her night we got her some flowers. (It’s a good thing too! The recital flowers were pretty dead, but I hadn’t had the heart to get rid of them. It was nice to have new ones take their place!)
