Today was the last day of school for my girls. The end of second grade and the end of preschool. And, sadly, the end of daily interactions with the three women below. They were my girls' teachers this year (Elizabeth had 2 for preschool) and they made a difference. They nurtured them, they educated them, they loved them, they supported them and encouraged them - they so made a difference in the girls' lives. And in mine. Many tears were shed today. We will miss them so very much.
