Graduation Gift from a Special Teacher

Her life is about to change in so many ways....
Sometimes it's nice to see how far we've come.
We received a very special memento from our daughter's third grade teacher recently. It was something we had completely forgotten about until our former neighbor asked me if we'd gotten "the letter". 
 (We had moved so it initially went to our old house, luckily the new owners held onto it for us!)
On the first day of third grade her teacher told his students that he'd be giving them a special graduation gift and it was this letter about their third grade selves.
Isn't this a wonderful idea?
It was fun to read her answers and see what has changed and what has stayed the same over the years.
She's still mad about the puppy.

i'm in my fifties and still have never forgiven my parents for not having a pet while growing up. an animal person is an animal person and not letting us have an animal is up there on the list of some of the worse things that can be done to us.

numb inducing

Thank you for sharing your lovely daughter with us.
