School Days

Today was our daughter's very first day of kindergarten. I didn't get alot of sleep last night so it took a few minutes to wake up* (I woke immediately when I realized I had to do her hair and pack her lunch and snack) and get in gear.

I got her looking pretty and took some pictures at then it hit me, my baby isn't a baby anymore. I'm not sure when she got so big or so grown up. She looked at me with those beautiful browns and that winning smile and I wanted to tear up. I held it back and told her how lovely she looked and gave her tons of kisses.

Jimbo just called to tell me that it was equally hard for him when he dropped her off in class. He said she was totally fine and seemed excited to be there. I'm not sure if this will ever become easier, no matter how many times we do it. In fact I think by the time Annabel starts kindergarten I'll be a wreck.

Time sure does pass quickly. Blink and you'll certainly miss something.
*due to Annabel's night owl ways, she kept me up all night long. Don't you love sleep deprevation?
