Fast forward thirty years. Now, I'm the grandparent and the excitement is different. I remember how much work goes into the program and I appreciate everything that all of the teachers and students do to make this day so special. I get to sit back and be so proud of my grandsons as they show me their classrooms and introduce me to their teachers. I get to smile and laugh and clap as they perform or show me to my seat to eat breakfast in the school gym.
Each day is different. It brings with it different experiences and memories. It is so important to embrace the day and to enjoy it for each and every special moment. I hope that you too will embrace today!
When you share your dreams and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
PS: I want to thank all of the teachers I have known over the years. I know how hard you work and how much you care for every child that you meet. It's a special job and you are very special people!
