Where time stood still?...not really

5th grade is almost history for my daughter, as is the innocence of elementary school. When she next enters the hallways, she will be in Jr. High ..what a radical change in environment. I don't recall my thoughts and experiences with my own transition years ago..I venture it was awkward, humiliating, and frightening..I can only hope that these feelings are minimilized for her. My baby, who seemingly only yesterday was singing Barney songs with me, and discussing the disappearance of Steve on Blue's Clues, is being thrown
into a bigger, scarier world...and I'm not ready.
