I was excited for Hayley to start kindergarten in 2008. I kept track of the number of days until she’d go and kept reminding her. I enjoyed seeing her excitement. I sat with her on the bus her first day. When she got home mom and dad were excited to ask her about her first day.
Mrs. Littlefield, one of my multi-age teachers from last year, told us she was retiring. I was expecting her to be my fourth grade teacher this year. My class had a farewell party for her at the end of the school year. We made cards for her and presented them at the party. I miss her. Sometimes I get to see her when she substitutes for the third grade class next door.
