Connor graduated from preschool today. He was given a certificate and a handshake and is now officially a kindergartner.
Some of parents, especially those whose youngest children graduated today cried. I admit, I haven't cried for any of the school milestones yet. I've always been very excited for the kids to take the next step. But, I have also had another child to follow. I'm not sure how it will feel to know it is "the last", the end of an era.
I've got a few friends (and even my buddy Oprah) going through some major changes in their lives. Some were planned, some were unexpected. I am impressed and amazed at the grace they are showing during these transitions.
Personally, I tend to fear change. At nearly every point in my life I think, "Life can't get any better than this. I don't want anything to change." But thank goodness it does. High school was pretty great and I didn't want to change. But then college was even better. Then marriage with no kids was even better than college. Now I'm in the at-home mom phase and truly can't imagine it getting better.
But I've been wrong before. And I think our upcoming change (adding sweet Veronica to the family) will make me question how I could have thought my life was complete before her.
