Cryin' Me a River
Thursday, May 24, 2012

I always get a little weepy as the school year comes to a close, but finishing up the Pre-K year is especially difficult. Saying goodbye to fantastic teachers and little classroom buddies who will all be going to different schools next year, is just so hard for me to do. Pre-K is such special year--a growing year--experiencing a ton of "firsts", and it's hard to believe it's come to an end. 

My Little Graduate

Her Closest Friends

It really does seem like yesterday I snapped this first day photo in her new big-booty-back-to-school dress. It's funny. She never wanted to wear that dress again--and didn't--the entire year.

Until today. The very last day of school.
(I promise, I had absolutely nothing to do with it.)

And here she is, nine months later. Isn't she "booty"ful?

As hard as it is to let go sometimes, I have to keep reminding myself that there is so much more to look forward to beyond Pre-K. Like finally having both kids in the same school next year. I'm already preparing myself for that emotional moment when big brother takes his baby sister by the hand and walks her into school on that first day. And praying to God he doesn't decide to trip her on the way in. 

Surely, he wouldn't dream of such a thing. Surely...

Lori, I can only imagine! I don't even want to think about them graduating from elementary school. It seems so far away but I know it will be here in a blink of an eye.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
