As the school year comes to a close, I can hardly believe that he is leaving 5th grade. I can truly say that it just seems like yesterday when I was walking him in for his first day of Kindergarten. As I look back on it, I walked him in many a mornings as he was super shy and didn't want to leave Mommy's side. You would have thought that I had stayed at home with him up until time for him to go to school but that wasn't the case as he had went to daycare.
On Tuesday I took some of my day and went to see my son graduate from D.A.R.E. how proud I was of him to see him go through this program. It seems like yesterday when I was in 5th grade and did D.A.R.E myself. Just say NO to drugs! Oh how I loved that program and I am so glad they still do this with the kids today. I know that at least he has been through this training and will be able to make wise decisions when and if that time comes along in his life.
