Schools Out!

Farewell Grade One.

I have very mixed feelings about you.
September was such a time of excitement and hope! A little boy ready to learn and filled with interest and confidence. 

First day of Grade 1. 
June shows a smaller boy, with less smiles, and a sad heart. One who is hard on himself and feels alone. One who desperately wants to fit in and achieve but can't find the yellow brick road.

W June '12
Grade One gave me insight. Not the kind I wanted to experience first hand. It also gave me the opportunity to volunteer and appreciate W's amazing teacher (she is/was!), experience first hand the gaps in the system, and the hilarity of precocious 6yr olds.

Here's to a wonderful summer and rebuilding the heart of our W.
