Another School Year Ends
Somehow I've never been one of those moms who stands in the kindergarten doorway crying and waving repeatedly on the first day of school. Well, at least not after the first child told me to 'go ahead and leave'. On the other hand, the mere note that my 5th grader would attend a 'promotion ceremony' brought tears to my eyes. The end of the year is always hard on me. I'm not sure if it's the reality that another year has whizzed by in their young lives or the realization that another year has passed in my own. I fear the truth of the matter is that I am mourning the loss of an empty house, even if it is only for a few hours a few times a week.
