So today is the first day of summer, and the last day of K's year of Kindergarten. This morning that made me sad. I know how much she loves her teachers and how much fun she has had. I am sorry for her that it is over. Also, the school kind of protects the Kinders (as K calls them) by keeping much of their day separate from the older kids. They don't have lunch in the cafeteria with everyone else (they eat in their classroom) and for extended day, the Kinders and Preschoolers are in their own room. Next year she will be in the mix with everyone else. She has been very anxious about it, and we have been trying to work that out. She was very comfortable in kindergarten, and I'm sure she will be in 1st grade too.
The worst part is - she is missing the last day of school! Last night she was complaining of a sore throat and by bedtime had a fever. Given that her siblings both had strep last week - we assume she has too. She is at the dr now, but we started her on antibiotics last night (left over from her brother).
DH went to school this morning to drop off gifts for her teachers and pick up her remaining stuff. The teachers had awards they were giving all the students in the class. My guess would be that K would have won "Most Likely to Answer a Question Without Raising Her Hand". Her teachers were much nicer. She got "Future President"!!! So awesome.
Luckily to celebrate summer, we were planning on having lots of messy Popsicles with dinner - should be good for the sore throat!
