Dear Time; Please Slow Down

Cal's first day of Kindergarten!!

Today is one for the blog. For sure!

My little man just graduated from Kindergarten. Alright, alright, I know it is not technically a graduation, but still...very exciting!!!!

They sang us some songs and our hearts melted. Then we got to watch a movie made up of all of the pictures taken throughout the school year. Wow, what a year it has been.

At one point in the ceremony Cal's teacher asked each student to come up and tell everyone what they want to be when they grow up. Lots of doctors, teachers, and truck drivers, and two pharmacists...Sorry for the crappy video quality, but it is still pretty cute.

After all the cuteness we all went back to the classroom for some grub. While in the classroom we also received a Memory Book of things our special little person has done throughout the school year. It is neat to see something as small as the difference in how he writes his name now as compared to the first day of school.

Tomorrow is the last day of school and we are going on a walking field trip to the park, but there is something even more significant going on in our house tomorrow. He will be 6. And we are excited, but kinda wishing time would slow down a little bit. More on the little big man tomorrow.

My sister is a pharmacist. :)

Congratulations to you and to your son. I (I swear) was thinking about my kindergarten graduation today -- or was it yesterday? Hmmm. Anyway, I remember the day well. I wonder if your son will remember today when he's 33?
