Welcome to Kindy Abby

I stayed a little longer tonight in bed as you fell asleep, memorizing how you looked as your eyes got heavy. I caught myself looking at you today more like my brain wasn't registering that you were really old enough. At varying times today it felt hard to breathe, my stomach tight with tention. So this is what it feels like to transition to the next phase.... you are ready but I'm reluctant. I have felt nervous this last week for tomorrow to come even though you are at the same school just going more days and with new teachers. You will do well there is no doubt.

Your light is so bright, may you show others.
Your creativity and imagination are sweet, may you nurture that for your whole life.

Your mind is quick, may you attain the knowledge that you need to be successful in your eyes, in your own way.

Your spirit can be wild and lead you to trouble but it will also serve you well in reaching your goals.

May you always treat people with respect, ESPECIALLY yourself.

May you always be honest even when it is hard.

May you always feel that you are loved and supported, even if we don't always agree.

May you always be true to yourself.... who you are.... and what makes you happy.

We love you like crazy girl.

Wow, I can feel your heart wrapping around that sweet little girl. This is the journey, no one told me that sometimes the best moments make your heart ache the worst. Love you mama.
