Transitions

First day of pre-school 2007-2008



Last day of pre-school 2007-2008

The hair is longer, the face is older, the backpack fits better and she's more relaxed as she gets ready to enter her pre-school on her last day of this school year. It's wonderful to see how much she's grown over this past year and bittersweet knowing it's all flying by so fast. She was brave but sad her first day but after that she loved it. She's going to miss her teachers and her classmates and I will too. We've had many transitions over the past year with a big girl bed, potty training, and we're going over to the dark side of nap free days. Our world just keeps getting bigger and now it's time to expand it even more with our big trip. However, after we leave, a couple of our very best friends are moving to San Francisco and we're going to miss them terribly.

Transitions:
Wonderful,
Difficult,
Scary,
Exhilarating,
Challenging,
Necessary.

This may be the last post for a little while until we're in Belgium. Currently, you'll find me packing, planning, running errands, prepping our house sitter and looking a little like a deer in the headlights.

Miss Buttons is so darn beautiful! Her looks have really matured. It's always a bittersweet seeing them grow - wonderful to see their little person develop, but sad knowing they're not the little baby anymore. OH LORD, wait 'til she gets on the bus for kindergarten - that's painful!

Sorry to hear about your friends moving.
