It's Friday, Friday, Gotta Get Down on Friday

Can you tell that I'm excited it's Friday?!  So excited that I'm singing that awful song by Rebecca Black. Yikes. This post is gonna be short and sweet and those that are annoyed by mom's who brag about their kids should probably exit now. :)

For those of you who follow this blog, and read through my ramblings on this post and this post and this one, you have heard about the struggles we have had since entering the school system. So, today when we watched our sweet girl, dancing and singing in her Pre-K celebration, I couldn't help but feel a huge burst of pride. When I realized that our sweet girl is no longer our baby but a soon to be Kindergartner, I was met with a huge mix of emotions. Sad, happy, relieved to name a few. Mix those emotions with pictures being played with music = one blubbering mama.

"The days of laughter and fun will never be forgotten, these are the days!"
Words can't describe how proud I am of Sophia and the progress she has made. Regardless of my feelings toward the school or the teachers, I know at the end of the day, we all want what is best for Sophia and for her to be successful. I am truly thankful for the teachers and other staff members who have made this year what it has been for Sophia and despite some of the struggles, frustrations it was all worth it to be there for her celebration today. I can feel secure in our decision to sending her onto Kindergarten knowing she has the tools to do great.

All good things must come to an end. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to those friends who are going on to the next phase in life. GOOD LUCK KINDERGARTNERS!

And cue crying mom. 

This weekend is pretty low key- I am running in the Dam to Dam 5K on Saturday and then on Sunday we have a graduation party to attend out of town. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on Monday, talking about some of my June goals!
