I'm not who I was.
Today is the last day that my J will be a 2nd grader. Come this afternoon, she will be a 3rd grader. She’s movin’ on up to the big hallway, ya’ll. That makes her further from the gym & the cafeteria, but closer to the library… which I’m certain makes her smile. Except that the librarian is retiring. Along with the teacher J has for reading. J is very sentimental & I’m sure that along with her happiness of books she will often mention how she misses the retired teachers. She is excited about 3rd grade, but she is also a little nervous about the unexpected. I keep trying to tell her that school is for teaching us what we don’t already know, so it’s not a problem if she hasn’t mastered something BEFORE it has been taught to her. (Perfectionist). Mostly, J is excited about summer!
Without further adieu, here are the pics comparing her 1st day of 2nd grade (purple shirt) with her last day of 2nd grade (orange shirt).
