An Open Letter To Our Preschool

I almost don't even know where to begin with this. Our days of bringing Sydney to your preschool are so very limited at this point, and that makes me incredibly sad. 

Sydney has grown so much in the 6 months that she has been coming to your school. I think that we all have in a way. That very first day that we dropped her off with you was the first time that we have ever just left Sydney anywhere, or with anyone that wasn't a family member. That day she ran in without so much as a goodbye or a backwards glance. I can happily say that it has been that way every day since then! She looks forward to school and counts down the weekend days! You have helped my daughter learn to love education, and for that I am ever so grateful! 

Sydney loves all of you even more than we do, and I know that leaving you is going to be so hard on her. When we realized that we would be moving before the school year ended, I was a little heartbroken. Sydney wouldn't be able to attend graduation or bring items to school for letterbox for the rest of the alphabet. In her mind, it will be summer break. But I will know better and, even though I know that finishing that month or so of preschool isn't that big of a deal in the big picture, it is something that has been on my mind for a while.  

Sydney has grown to love you four so very much, and I know that she will miss you. When Mrs. O told me the story about their one on one time where she just broke down in tears realizing how much she was going to miss my little girl, I knew that we were doing something right. Sydney may have the ability to be the biggest punk ever when we bring her home, but when we leave her with you she is an angel. That speaks a great deal to how much she loves being there. 

As Little School parents we have had so much fun and the field trips, the parent helper days, and the holiday parties. I can't believe that it is already over, but we will miss you so! You have definitely prepared us all for the school years to come.
