Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people. ~Fred Rogers

2009-Grace goes to kindergarten

Our little pooh bear started Kindergarten today.  She was excited and proud on the way.  She got a little overwhelmed when we left (an aide moved her into the room– her little hands were grabbing at the door frame and she was shouting “don’t leave Mommy”).  When I picked her up she looked happy and light and proud.   We are very proud of her.  Her teacher is going to be out for the next week and a half and Grace is concerned about that.  I hope that someone in that school will recognize Gracie’s spirit and teach to it.  Let’s hope all goes well.  It just might!

PS We had an after school snack and cartoons today, for the first time!!  Too bad Mr. Rogers wasn’t on.  Life is good.
