Today we made stationary sets to give to all of her classmates on her last day at her current school. This project brought up many questions and really got her thinking about what this move really means. It was a good time for us to talk about our new journey and for me to answer all her many four year old questions. Receiving mail from her old friends will be both exciting and comforting for her once we move.
I cherish these little friendships that my children make. It's where they learn to play, share, disagree, love and many other lessons of life that will be a part of making them who they will become.
We found blank cards and envelopes and put a couple in each cello bag along with stickers. We also included a little farewell note from Emma along with her new address. We folded the cello bag over and closed with a sticker. I think these would also be great as a gift for family or friends that live far away. It helps children learn a great step at staying connected even when afar.
We made a special little set for her teachers. Oh goodness, good-byes are never easy.
