We had the most delicious and beautiful dinner last night at my son's school. It was for all the parents & the 8th grade graduating class & their teachers. It was so nice seeing everyone and just relaxing and chatting and eating! I will miss all the parents I have gotten to know & I will encourage my son to keep in touch with all the friends he has made.
I'm glad we were able to gather and celebrate because I think it will help us get used to the idea that all of the children are leaving middle school for real next week. It is a cause for celebration that they are moving and growing but it is also heart wrenching at the same time.
