Last night, I was so surprised by your nervous tears.
I knew you were anxious...but I knew you'd be fine today.
I actually knew you'd be MORE than fine.
See, because you are at "my" school, I can hand pick your teacher.
I ALWAYS pick the one that will love you for who you are.
Haven't I always made good choices for you?
You were worried that second grade would be "too hard" for you.
It's a big year...with a big 'ol state test at the end of it.
But, all we want from you this year, is for you to try your best.
Learn new things.
Make new friends.
Keep old friends.
Be a best friend.
Do your best.
And have fun.
Thanks for letting me take your picture this morning...
It's fun to see how you've grown since the first day of first grade:
