day 180

today was ian's last day of kindergarten. i'm kinda amazed that the school year is over already and in less than three months my son will be in first grade. where does the time go?

yesterday i was trying to get ian to write a little something to his teacher, but he couldn't think of anything to write. i honestly got a little exasperated with him; he spends everyday with this woman for nine months and he can't think of a single thing to say to her?! in the end he just wrote "thank you for being my teacher," which is better than nothing, i guess.

but as we were saying good-bye to her today the tears started to well up and ian cried because he was going to miss mrs. R. the sweet boy that i can't help but hope doesn't vanish with age appeared before me and all i wanted to do was gather him in my arms and squeeze him.

there's more i want to say about ian finishing kindergarten, but i don't even know where to begin ...

awwww....what a sweet posting, yucaree. ian is such a great kid and i can't believe how quickly he went through kindergarten. i suppose you can't keep him from growing up, but all the love and nurturing you shower on him will help him to continue being a gentle, sweet guy. he truly is a wonderful kid!
