My little boy is growing up.
I'm realizing it slowly, like when I drag over the stool so Colby can help with dinner and find he can reach the counter fine on his own. Or when Alice asks for a story and I'm busy and I look over 5 minutes later to see Colby reading it for me.
He'll start Kindergarten in August as a Sahuarita Primary School Owl. There are so many little kids around here that they split the elementary schools: SPS is K-2 and SIS is 3-5. There will be 12 Kindergarten classes alone. 12!
Anyway, Colby's preschool had a little graduation ceremony and he wasn't really excited about going. The boys were leaving for the Father and Son camp-out immediately after and he didn't quite trust us when we said the ceremony would be short.
We lasted a grand total of 15 minutes. The place was packed. The invitation said due to lack of space, please limit guests to immediate family, but a couple families ignored that rule completely (one corner of the room had at least 15 aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents for one kid).
On to Kindergarten!
