We are now at the mid point of our year. Children have identified themselves as a “Jitterbug” or a “Dragonfly.” They know where to go when they go to enrichment, “downstairs to Gabi we go!” “one behind the other,” they chant as they take the stairs to her atelier. Pre-k kids in Sunshine or Rainbow may have begun to hear the words Kindergarten, or “big kid school.” Something happens when we reach this point. It is as if our toes are pointed down a hill after taking the long climb upward. Time speeds up and we can’t believe how quickly milestones pass by. I want to take a moment to slow us down to enjoy this moment.
