B cried last year because she would've like to have her kindergarten teacher forever. But then she LOVED first grade and this year? Not a tear shed, she's excited for second grade! This year it's just nerves over moving to a new town...but she's getting braver and braver all the time. Crazy how big they get, how quickly it all goes!

It IS amazing, isn't it? I know T. will love 1st grade, just as she's found things to love every new school year. But it's been a new experience to us to have to help a child through those positive feelings about school. L. was always so happy school was done, he couldn't get out of it fast enough!
