If you are reading this on Wednesday, there are 73 days until spring break!
That message wasn’t meant to cause you woe, but as a special, “top of mind,” statement. I want send a message to everyone with a tip of the hat to the Class of 2017, the parents of the Class of 2017 and to the parents of current sixth-graders.
As each day seems to trudge by over the next few months, I want to get in an early reminder to enjoy this time.
All too soon, the time will come when it is the last of everything, so for a semi halfway reminder, enjoy it while it lasts.
Parents of seniors, especially if this is your first graduate, the next five months are about to move at a warp speed. It is easy not to see it due to deadlines, upcoming this and that, but it will all fly by too quickly.
I feel the same way for parents of sixth-graders and want you to relish the next few months, too. Yes, even though middle school is great with wonderful, new things on the horizon, you will miss these elementary moments more than you can imagine one day.
Who can believe 2016 is gone and we have a whole new year ahead.
This is the year when we all need to engage in kindness, compassion and putting others first.
