I went back to school yesterday afternoon
all the way back to kindergarten
it had been 17 years since I sat in a kindergarten class.
Just a little over 17 years ago Mr. D and I watched
our Baby Girl step up onto that big yellow school bus for her
long-awaited first day of school.
It was "yesterday", wasn't it?
But for real "yesterday" I went back to kindergarten.
This go 'round -- our Baby Girl was the teacher!
It was her last day of student teaching and I had
the privilege of sitting in and observing her teach.
She was fabulous
(I'm not just saying that 'cuz she's my daughter)
In some ways it felt very surreal watching her teach
these adorable kindergarten students
yet, it also felt very normal
like she was in her sweet spot.
My young mom self could have used some of her
wisdom back when she was a kindergartner
(^James was the helper yesterday)
Our Baby Girl
is graduating from college
Friday morning at 10:30 am
It could be another surreal moment.
