And She's Off!!!
Someone hand me a tissue please! My little girl and best little buddy is now officially in school!

Squirt has been very excited about this all week long. "How many more days Momma?" she would ask. She was quick to go to bed early - if not to adjust her sleeping schedules - it was as if by sleeping she could make this wonderful day come faster.

Not so last night. No, she was itching with excitement and anxiety. Jon spied her awake at 1:30 this morning but nothing stopped her from jumping out of bed when I came in to wake her up.

On with the Peter Pan blouse, school uniform and little black patent leather Mary Jane shoes. Afterward, I wrestled with the crazy curls and imprisoned some with a pretty uniform bow. It was all I could do to get her to eat breakfast this morning as she was ready to run out the door!

Down with breakfast and on went her backpack - this kid was raring to go!

Out the front door and to the car she skipped, just like an astronaut ready to take a trip into space. That huge backpack sure made it appear that way!

The nervousness and anxiety kicked into full gear once we arrived at school. Her fast paced skipping steps turned into slow motion shuffles. Daddy encouraged her from the front as I took pictures and pushed her from the rear.

Soon we were there! In her new classroom, with her new teacher and fresh new faces of potential best friends.

Her nervousness was still evident as we left her in class. In fact, my tummy is turning right now. I can't wait to hear about her day when she comes home this afternoon.

I pray it goes well.

    ahhhh.... (hands tissue over) we know that feeling, but from a good few years ago... she looks so confident... I'm sure that she'll master this new world... especially with such a good friend and mother as a guide...

    She will do fine and she will have missed you.
    From this point on it only gets worse. ( not for her but you)

    Yay! What a cute little girl. Makes me think of my little girl on her way to school so many years ago.
