Kindergarten Graduation...

Photobucket

She did it... our little girl graduated from kindergarten...
my heart did hurt... yes... but it was really proud!
maybe it skipped a few beats and had to beat hard to catch up...
There she was... the girl that lived inside of me... on a stage in front of many... getting a diploma...
one of many big days...

we watched proud as the classes sang songs about being classmates... coloring... making friends...

and we hugged hard as our hearts were pouring with pride!

it never really stops does it...
the gulp in your throat...
it's always there...
the swelling of tears as you blink and you have a 6 year old.
that's there forever right...?

it's these fast forward days that make me slow down... slllllowly.....
at night I still watch our girls sleeping when I check on them once more...
if I look really closely at only their faces they still look like they did... but then when I back up and look at their limps and bodies it hits me every time...
how are their toes almost touching the edge of the bed... how are their heads filling their pillows so much...
why does that lovie look so small...

Kindergarten was a tough one for me... I loved every day... but I thought going through the year I would stop the sulking feeling that I had the first day... the long walk home...
it was there every day...

maybe there is no solution to being a parent and letting your children grow...
we have to celebrate every day... every milestone... ever little thing ... celebrate as hard as we can!
Living Fiercely... Hang on tight the ride is fast but damn it's fun!

a little celebration is always in order!

and then our littlest had her last day of preschool... not to worry she has many more years of preschool... I know her first day of kindergarten will be sneaking in... I will be ready for it... no doubt she surely will...
