Chloe’s Moving Up

Chloe had her moving up ceremony today. At 10:30 AM. They couldn’t possibly have a picked a worse time for working parents (the number of moms and dads on their BlackBerries during the show – and I was guilty as well – was pretty astounding. And also pretty depressing, but that’s another blog entry for another time). Anyway, it was a cute ceremony. Each class sang a song or recited a poem. It was very informal, which was nice, because in no way did the circumstances call for caps and gowns.

Next year, she’ll be in a grade 3-5 school, which is why her current K-2 school had a celebration to mark the occasion. I’m sure glad there are no more school-related events this year, however. Juggling schedules had become a little complicated of late.
I can’t believe that Chloe is going to be a 3rd grader. Nine years old in a few months. Argh! I hope she likes her new school – they certainly seem to offer a lot of terrific enrichment activities. I also hope she makes some new friends. In the meantime, summer is here. Chloe’s last day of school is tomorrow. And our weekends are more or less booked until mid-August.
I feel like the summer is almost over, and yet it’s barely started. I need to stop projecting so much into the future, and just live life in the present. Maybe time will seem to go more slowly if I succeed.
