You are 81 months old and have finished nearly 2 months of first grade.
I chaperoned your recent field trip to the Stillman Nature Center. You really enjoyed learning about all the bugs and creatures that live there.
You were sad this week when your bus driver, Mr. Pete, let us know that he had gotten another job and would no longer be driving. You spent an afternoon making him a card that alternately expressed your fondness for him and beligerently berating him for getting another job.
What I can tell you is that each person that you loved is still in your heart and you in theirs and even if you can't see them, you can feel them again every time you remember them. The good times you shared don't have to be forgotten. Moving away doesn't mean forgetting all the fun times. You can continue to love someone even if they are only in your life for a short while. If you can learn that simple (but complex) lesson, your life will be richer as you allow your heart to open to what you can learn from (as well as give to) each friendship without holding back for fear that they may someday be gone.
