I have to laugh that I am sitting here a bit teary that my baby girl has just graduated; from elementary school!!
When I was little we did not have graduation ceremonies from preschool, kindergarten and elementary school; not even from junior high school (or as they call it now "middle school"). Graduation and the ceremonies that surround it were saved for high school and college, then graduate school, law school and medical school.
It feels like a conspiracy to remind today's parents on a more regular basis, just how fast our kids are growing up, and time is passing us by!
