Even though she has been excited for second grade (!!!), I wasn’t quite ready to let go of summer.
Unless she was teasing one of her younger sisters, then I was a little excited.
So to you Lynnie-Lou-Hoo…
I don’t know which was cuter: you singing in the shower last night at the top of your lungs, “I’m gonna be a seeconnnndd graaaaderrrr tomorrrrrrowwwwww!!” or the sweet hug you and dad shared after your back to school father’s blessing.
(You were very specific as to how you wanted your backpack personalized..)
Or your excitement at seeing old friends.
I am going to miss seeing this grin all day.. will have to settle for the few I get before 8 am, and the far too many I get while you are silly doing your homework.
Or did I love it a little TOO much when you were VERY done with my mammarazzi ways taking pictures?
I know you will be a great friend to all you meet this year. I know you will have a great time, and hope you enjoy all the notes I slip into your lunch (and hope they don’t embarrass you too much).
I hope you grasp all that you are taught, and I hope you find excitement in everything you learn.
(Between you and me, I hope you do far better at math than I was ever able to!)
Know that every day when you leave, I will be there, waiting for you.
Love you Lynnie-Lou-Hoo, my seeconnnndd graaaaderrrr!
