It’s hard to believe that today is your last day of preschool. These last five and a half years have felt like a blur, and now I have a baby who is ready to go off to Kindergarten.
I remember the very first day I left you so I could go back to work. Dropping you off at my best friend’s house, I was shot with nerves. I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving you for an entire day. But, we made it work.
Days seemed like an eternity while I was away from you, but somehow years slipped by. We had our good days and bad, but we had a house full of love. You got bigger, stronger, smarter, and more beautiful. You also gained a little sister.
Somehow you turned five and have reached your last day of preschool. How did this happen? Wasn’t it just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital?
Kennedy, I am so proud of you. You have turned into a brilliant, confident and enthusiastic leader. You have a tender heart, but a silly side. You have a beautiful singing voice that you’re not afraid to show off (and, might I add – you’ve got some killer vibrato). You have excelled in so much that you do at school. Your teachers and classmates all love you and everyone wants to be your friend. You haven’t met a stranger, and you have an amazing way of making other kids feel included.
You have had some great years at preschool, and I know it’s sad to say goodbye to your friends and teachers. You have made an impact on so many, and you are so important to our family.
But, you know what? New and exciting things are headed your way. You were created to do big things. You get to go to Kindergarten!
On your last day of preschool, I want you to feel proud of all you’ve learned. I want you to smile big. I want you to sing loud.
I love you so much, and I cannot wait to see where this world takes you.
