End of An Era

Yesterday, life as we have known it changed.  Our last child finished 6th grade at Desert Rose.  We first walked on the campus in 1990 when our oldest started kindergarten, I started volunteering then and my last day was yesterday.   The school holds more good memories than bad, it was such a part of our lives.  We will now have two kids in high school as Isaac graduated from 8th grade, our 5th to go to the same high school where my husband and I met.  So yesterday when I left the campus, I realized it was the last time I was leaving as a parent of a student. . .  I just hope in the fall when it is time to take Alanna to school I go to the right school, old habits can be hard to break!

Desert Rose will never be the same without all your help, Dorene. Your hard work and unwavering dedication really made the year that I taught Alanna a walk in the park. You made me realize how much more fun teaching can be when you have a little help. When I go back to teaching, you will always be the standard by which all other "Room Mothers" are measured!

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I loved helping you that year. I feel lucky that I became friends with so many of my kids teachers. Blessed I am.
