A2's first year of preschool had a parade that was beyond compare. His second year of preschool had a more sedate version. And now, his Kindergarten class goes even quieter. Since I was cut from the "more is more" cloth, this trend makes me a little sad.
But he hardly notices because that smile tells me he's still having a great time:
I secretly had all the kids trace and cut out all their handprints for personalized birthday messages to their teacher--her birthday is in July but I wanted to use a rainbow in keeping with the St. Patrick's Day theme. On one of the clouds, I composed a little poem for her. Kindergarten-level poetry is a specialty of mine.
