  1. It is crazy how fast elementary school goes and it is the longest school career (6 years vs 3 or 4). I think it’s neat that they had the same favorite memory from elementary school. Safety city must be pretty cool! I hope you share your responses with the kids. I think they love to hear specific reasons why we are proud of them. Good luck this week mama! It’s so fun and hard at the same time. But I will say almost one year in, middle school is pretty neat too.
