On Friday, I was trying to get my 5 year olds pumped up for graduation next week. I was telling them that after they graduate, they can go to a new class with new classes and new teachers.
Then little Andy looked at me and said, "But on graduation you are going to America."
"Yes, Mark Teacher and I will go back home," I replied.
And he got really serious and said "When you go, I won't cry." And did his quick blinking thing he does he hold back tears. Which of course made me tear up a bit too.
Uh oh... next week is going to be harder -- much harder -- than I thought.
