Okay, get your tissues. Here is a beautiful letter my son had in his report card folder when he brought it home. I thought it was beautiful. It is a letter from my son's teachers to the parents:
We give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to our care last fall. We give him back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than he was then.
Although he would have attained his growth in spite of us, it has been our pleasure and privilege to watch his personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.
We give him back reluctantly, for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a crowded classroom, we have grown close, have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of each other.
We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. We wish it could go on indefinitely, but give him back we must. Take care of him, for he is precious.
Remember that we shall always be interested in your child and his destiny, wherever he goes, whatever he does, whoever he becomes. His joys and sorrows we will always be happy to share.
Thank you for sharing your most precious gift with us. God Bless!
Mrs. D and Mrs. H
Such a beautiful gift. I thank Mrs. D. and Mrs. H for the wonderful year my son had with both of you.
