Brokenhearted Graduate

Today was Celeste's last day of kindergarten. I was able to go to her little graduation celebration. It was adorable. She was so thrilled to perform the songs they learned this year, and I was pleased to see her cheering for everyone and giving high fives to all the kids as they went up to get their diplomas.

But when it was time to say goodbye... she seemed to realize that she probably wouldn't see her friends and her teacher again, and it broke her little heart. She couldn't stop sobbing, no matter how much I tried to comfort her. I think that's one of the hardest things about being a parent is a sometimes there's nothing we can say or do to make it better. :(

So after she said her goodbyes we went out to the car and had a good cry together. We're sure going to miss our wonderful friends here in Ohio.

Celeste and her very best friend


Group hug!


Here she is trying to be brave. Love this sweet tenderhearted girl.

Oh my, look at that sweet little face with tears in her eyes...how tender. Goodbyes are the worst!!

That is so sad! Poor little thing. It's hard saying goodbye and even harder helping our young children understand their emotions concerning it. You are a great mom. She gets her sensitivity from you! :o)

Oh, poor Celeste.....you can just see the sadness! What a tender little heart. I have one of those...my Hope....it is hard to see them be sad. What a blessing you could be there with her... I missed Hope's last day, because I was in the hospital having Sadie that very day!...

That is so sad. Saying goodbye is hard. She looks cute smiling with tears in her eyes. Congratulations on the graduation.

That last picture is so precious. Celeste is lucky to have such an understanding and supportive mom!

I can't get over how much your little celeste looks like you. That is a hard time, when your child is so sad about something entirely legitimate, and you are at a loss to comfort her, because your heart is breaking yourself. I can't imagine my little Willow going into Kindergarten, let alone graduating from it. Good luck, Nicole!
