Dear Zachary, we could not be more proud of you. When you began preschool in Jan. 2008, you had trouble resolving conflicts without your hands; we were happy to see this improve dramatically after a few weeks in school! You hated large crowds, group games, and loud noises; making team sports and gross motor time quite a challenge. You held your hands over your ears during worship time and rarely sang along. You never wanted all eyes on you, so you generally opted out when your class sang in church. The first time you sang with joy and confidence in front of a group was at your class' Thanksgiving Feast last fall. I will never forget the pride that Daddy and I felt watching you overcome such a great fear. As last night's closing program approached, I watched you rehearse with your class; refusing to sing some of the songs. But last night, you sang every note and didn't miss a motion. You later told us that you had so much fun that you wanted to do it again 1,000 times. We are so very proud of you. You are leaving preschool and entering kindergarten with such confidence, excitement and curiosity. We are all excited for you.
