Kindergarten Bound!

Dear Owen,

Tonight, you are a preschool graduate. I have so many emotions about this! You are such an amazing kid. You are sensitive, smart and funny. You have the best laugh I’ve ever heard and you are reading like a boss. I am so grateful to Miss Sue for the 3 years she spent investing in you, Owen. She has loved you endlessly, been so very patient with you and taught you more new things than I can even begin to list here.

You are a part of a very special group of boys because of preschool, too. You are all very special friends and you have just a fantastic time together! You are going to miss these little buddies like crazy. Lucky for you, though, I’ve become pretty close to their mamas, so we still see them quite a bit!

I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. I am excited for you to start elementary school and experience everything new and wonderful about it. If I’m totally honest, though, I am a little bit sad. This milestone marks the end of your little years. You won’t be my morning muddy a couple of days a week again, like this year. I will miss you tremendously. To put it in the words of my very favorite book about being a mama: “If I could keep you little, I’d keep you close to me… but then I’d miss out on seeing you become who you were meant to be.”

Love you, Buddy.
