and one a little closer up and better lighting :)
It still does not seem possible that kindergarten is over - my little girl is growing up!
I do have to admit that tonight was tough. I know most times I am SUPER ULTRA positive on this blog. Yes - Brooklyn has had a GREAT year and I think everyone on her team is really starting to "get" her and Rett Syndrome. She was included into a general ed kindergarten and made some AMAZING little friends this year.
However, tonight was TOUGH! I found myself fighting back tears throughout the entire program. It was just one of those nights where I wanted Brooklyn to be one of the "other kids" out of her chair....jumping around...yelling out the songs off key in her loudest voice possible. Don't get me wrong - she was ALL SMILES and she LOVES her classmates and had a great time tonight. It was me that was having the trouble. It was just one of "those events" that come along that sneak up on me like a slap in the face and makes my heart sad.
I am so proud of her and am thankful for the friends she has made and am thankful for the parents of those friends that have raised their kiddos to be loving, accepting, sweet kids - such blessings to Brooklyn AND to me!
