The Pomp And the Circumstance

For the first time in a long time, Woodbrook had a proper fifth grade graduation today. I even stayed in the gym during the slide show. After I told the kids that it was hard for me to get through one of those without tearing up a bit, they made sure I stayed for it. Because of this, I didn't shed a tear, but still, it was sad to see the kids grow up so fast.

It doesn't seem right. I can see this maybe being the mid-point in the school year, but definitely not the end. Definitely not the end.

This looks awesome, but I bet you the slideshow last year was better.

This is the first year in a long time that I've actually watched the slide show. Normally, I get out of there because I always get teared up during it. I made the mistake of telling my students about this, and they made sure I stuck around this year. But still, Olive, I'm sure it wasn't as good as yours! :)
