and there she goes...

...without any hesitation. We got up extra early to make sure we had everything we needed. Got ready without any complaints. Left and arrived before traffic was crazy. Mostly concerned with seeing her teachers from last year. And that's when I thought I was going to fall to pieces. As the two wonderful women who guided my hand ever so gently into the public school system embraced my beautiful, smart, sweet oldest child. They recognized right off the very thing that I've been watching take place over the past ten weeks...my little girl is turning into a little lady. Breathe and Blink I told myself. And I was able to get past the moment without shedding those tears (until I got home). Off to the new classroom. Eager and ready to learn. Excited about all the new friendships waiting to be made. Pose for some obligatory pictures that MUST be taken on the first day of school of every year...and then she was already in her own little world.
