He had his Beginner's Day for kindergarten while my in-laws were here. We left Oliver and Colin home with Judy and took Bill with us. At Beginner's Day they had a uniform fashion show and then divided the kids up by language, took them to a classroom, and talked to the parents a little. Gabe was scared but brave. I get sad thinking about him going to school next year. I never thought that I would be as sad as I was with Colin because this is my second time letting go and Gabe is older than Colin was, but I am sad nevertheless. Gabe is my pal during the day and it is so hard to think of him being under someone else's care for so much of the day. Do my kids have to grow up so fast?
