A couple of days ago, my wife and I joined other parents to watch our children bid farewell to the protected walls of pre-k and bite our nails with eager anticipation as they journey towards kindergarten. This was a huge milestone for so many in the room; parents as we watch our children start a new milestone and the kids as they learn that saying goodbye to something (or someone) is part of life.
The kids walked in and cheering began.
The ceremony started off with some songs and opening remarks. I was so proud to watch Jackson lead the attendees with the pledge to the Christian Flag.
Kindergarten, here we come, here we come
Kindergarten here we come.
So long preschool, it’s been fun.
Kindergarten here we come, here we come.
