A New Era begins

Monday, August 26, 2013

This morning, my first born started Kindergarten.  And while I spent much of this past weekend being nostalgic for the moments when I rocked her in my arms convinced that this day was ages away, there were no tears this morning.  Just excitement for this new stage.  Just grateful that I have been with her for the past five years.  So endlessly grateful that I had time to lay the groundwork. 

We celebrated by taking her out to breakfast at our favorite diner.  Then, after hugs, kisses, a pep talk from Daddy, and some Mamarazzi madness, she walked right into her classroom and never looked back. 

Spread your little wings, baby.  You are loved!

  1. Wow!!! Take my breath away!!!

    M is such a good Daddy! ;)

    Sister is so beautiful!

    I want her shoes! ;)

  2. Such a sweet way to remember this big step in her childhood! I love that you are so open-handed--I want to be that way too (it might be daddy who has the harder time :)). Also, of course, Hollis has that same backpack! :)

    1. Of course she does! :) How are you feeling mama? Been thinking about you!

  3. So bittersweet my friend. Praying for your family during this transition. She is going to thrive :)

  4. Oh man, that picture of Mike and her in the restaurant just kills me!

    1. Yes, it was the most adorable conversation. Glad I snapped that photo. :)
