Farewell first grade

Adam celebrated his final day of first grade this morning with games and pizza outside with his class.  He said goodbye to his best friends M and C [a.k.a. The Three Musketeers] and even introduced me to the girl he’s been talking to recently.  I’m glad he trusts me enough to bring me into his circle in such a way.

First grade with Ms. D made for an amazing year.  From the moment I met her it was obvious how much she loves her job.  She understands how to best engage her students and you can tell she truly enjoys instructing them.  If we could be so lucky as to have instructors like Ms. D for the remainder of Adam’s schooling!

What’s on our agenda for the summer?  Much of it remains up in the air.  We’re still figuring out options for Tatum.  As for my boy child, he’s eagerly anticipating two sessions of Lego camp at the JCC.  Luckily I have contact info for the other two Musketeers– so I hope to reunite that trio as often as possible during the break.  It blows my mind to think I am the parent of a child who is old enough to swim unassisted in the pool with his friends.  Where did the time go?!

Vacations would be nice.  Both family and solo.  Maybe the beach.  Anywhere with water.  I’m also dreaming of Colorado and Texas….

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
