I can't even believe it, but my little man is no longer little.
On Wednesday, he graduated from Kindergarten, and is (somewhat) reluctantly bounding in to the first grade. I remember this time last year, obsessing about whether we found the right school for him, was it right to wait and make him an older kindergartner, and general nervousness about how his year would go. A year later, it is glaringly clear that every choice we made was the right one for him, and yet another reminder that no one knows your kid like you do. I couldn't be more proud of the man he is growing in to, and I wish I could stop time because I'm pretty sure this age is the best there is.
Now, I'm pretty sure that you can't end a school year without a little FUN, and we capped ours off with a pretty epic sleepover to celebrate these little guys' big accomplishment.
