Monkey just finished her first year of pre-school; it ended the same way it began: me in tears.

How can my baby be this old?

Monkey absolutely loved her teacher.  Mrs. Amy was a fantastic teacher, and she will be missed next year.  She took a full time position with the YMCA and I know she will bless so many families through that program, just as she blessed ours this year.

As we were leaving, Mrs. Amy held Monkey’s hands, leaned in close, and asked Monkey to always stay silly, and never change.  I love that.  And I think I needed the reminder of what a gift that truly is.

Thank you for a wonderful year!
