My Little Man
My Willem was such a gentleman today. Really, he was so sweet. We had his Kindergarten Grad today. It was a little party with a castle theme...thus the cake. The teacher called it the Alphabet Ball and the kids were so very excited. She talked about it for weeks to try to add some excitement to the end of the year. It worked and I think the kids will remember it for a long time.
Because it was a ball, she taught them how to waltz. They danced with partners first. Then we parents got to dance with our kids. My Willem led me all around the dance floor. Really. He had his arm around my waist and pulled me forward, then pushed me backward, then spun me around. Then he'd look up at me and smile his 5 year old smile. And back to the dancing. It was a special moment that I won't soon forget.
