The end of the school year is always a little bittersweet. Kids that we work with throughout the year go home for vacation and summer is upon us. I always love to go to the end of the school year celebration at Peris, though, because I feel like their mama watching them perform and then receive their diplomas from their teachers. I always wipe a few tears away as I watch the oldest kids that I've worked with for almost 10 years graduate and move on to the smallest ones as they are just beginning their school journey.
