The Night Before First Grade
You are our little joy; our darling. With just a dash of spunk and a whole lot of sweetness you are our special blessing from above. Oh how excited you are for tomorrow. You love school. You "love, love, love" your teachers. You are a good friend and a smart student. It's that lovely smile of yours and especially your caring ways. You just seem to know when someone needs a little extra love, and you're always there to give it. I'm so proud of you Abigail.
I know that it's hard for you sometimes to be different because of your EoE disease but with your allergies you've become compassionate, strong, and sensitive. These are all qualities that no one could ever teach you. You learned them all on your own.
This is going to be a wonderful year. Last week when I was a bit sad that summer was winding down daddy said to me, "but you love first grade. Remember, a reader is about to be born." Oh yes, with the little books you're reading now and the love for learning that you have in you I know that this year will be one to blossom and grow.
Try your best this year, be a sweet friend, smile, laugh and love each and every day. I'll be missing you oh so much and I can't wait to see your happy face tomorrow at the end of the day.
