Kindergarten Registration at last...hurray!Boo-Hoo

Today was registration for my last kindergartener. I used to think I would jump for joy the day my last child started school! Now, I have this huge sense of accomplishment and sadness all mixed together. I know my 5 1/2 year old is ready to be challenged and wanted to go last year, but he missed the age cut off by three weeks. I do a lot with him, library day, volunteer together in his 1st grad brother's class as often as possible, play games with him, take him to the MSU campus with me, and take him places that his other brother's can't go during the day. Now that his registration is complete, I feel like the sand is filling up in the bottom of the hourglass. We only have 6 weeks of one on one time left before all the boys are home for the summer. At least I can find solace in the fact that, come fall, he'll only be going every other day. Our school has a gathering for kindergarten parents after the kids say goodbye called "Boo-Hoo Coffee". I was invited last year and just smiled and went on with my day, happy that my son was thrilled to be in school. Inside, I snickered at the "clingy" parents that couldn't handle it.....guess I better reserve my seat for the next "Boo-Hoo!/
