Last Day of Kindergarten

Today is my last day as mom of a Kindergartner. I now officially have a rising 1st Grader! Not sure who is more excited about today being the last day of school, Luke or me. No more 5:45 AM alarm! At least until August.

How much has he changed in the last 9+ months? So much, it is hard to quantify. He is reading and writing, which he pretty much was not doing at all before he started. He is also doing much more complex math now. Previously, he could only add up to about 10; he can now go up to about 20 and he can subtract. It really is amazing. But there were other changes as well.

Compare the newly minted Kindergartner from back in August 2010:

To the grizzled veteran Kindergartner of this morning:

I know, I can't believe it either. The poses aren't identical (didn't have time to review the August photos before I had to take the ones this morning), but you can still see the change. Particularly look at his shoulder height in relation to the inset panels and door knob. I see him every day, so while I know that he's gotten taller, it is still stunning to actually *see* the difference sometimes. I can't wait to see what 1st grade brings!

Currently feeling: ready for summer break!
