11 years, 7 months.
This was a big week for you. Your school held a very special graduation ceremony for all the 5th grade classes, celebrating the past 6 years of elementary school, while sending you off with excitement to middle school.
You took it upon yourself to wear your snazzy bowtie for this special occasion!
I tried, but there has been nothing I could do to help live in the moment any more than I have, as I’ve watched you grow up these past 11 and a half years.
The best I could do has been to write to you every single week of your life, to capture a glimpse of what was going on so that our family would be able to revisit.
You are growing up. And I couldn’t be prouder of you.
