As the school year comes to a close, I cannot believe how mature Munch seems. She has learned so much this year that I can barely believe it. Munch is an accelerated reader now who finds her nose in a book a lot just like her mama. She is challenged by spelling like most of her classmates, but English grammar is ridiculously hard. I appreciate more and more the structure and the lack of exemptions from rules that Spanish grammar provides.
Munch got to say the morning prayer at her school for Earth Day. She invited me to drop her off that day so I could listen to her say the prayer. Dropping Munch off at school is a luxury for this working mama. I rarely have the opportunity to do this. I was honored that she asked for me. As I watched her read the announcement in the microphone, I noticed her poise, her grace and her confidence. My sweet Munch, I hope you never lose the amazing sense of self that you have. I love you, and I am so proud of you!
