In 45 minutes I will leave to pick up Miss Breuklyn from her final day of Kindergarten. Yesterday was the Kindergarten Graduation and then I brought in cookies for her class celebration. And since she had clearly not had enough sugar, we hit up Sonic for a vanilla ice cream cone, just the two of us, so that we could discuss the day's events.
Me: Are you going to miss Kindergarten or are you ready to move up to First Grade?
Breuklyn: (looks unsure) I think I am ready. I will still be able to play, won't I?
M: Of course. You will still have recess and I am sure that your new teacher will have lots of fun things planned.
B: Am I done with math?
M: Not so much.
B: (disappointed) Well... will I still have rest period?
M: No, you won't have to bring in your mat for First Grade. No more rest period.
B: But what will the teacher do?
M: What do you mean?
B: Well, don't we have rest period so the teacher can get a break from us?
M: (laughing) You have it all figured out, Breuklyn, you are now ready for First Grade.
Whether she is ready or not, I am ready for summer vacation! 8 whole weeks to enjoy every moment of my little monsters all being at home. Sigh. Does it get any better than that?
