School starts Wednesday!

My little girl is no longer so little! She starts real school this Wednesday! TODAY was my last day with her. TODAY! I can't believe it! I've been with my precious sweety for FOUR years of my life and now it's like cutting the umbilical cord all over again! HOW CAN time have gone by so quickly? OMG, i'm sad just thinking about Wednesday. Everytime i think about it, i silently cry or get all teary eyed. It just seems soo soon! She's my baby. She's also such a big help to me. Really, i couldn't have made it through the last year without her. She really helps me so much with the girls. She's SOOO good to them. SOO GOOD! She has that motherly peaceful soothing voice(sometimes) when they are fighting or someone has gotten hurt. It's soo cute. She talks to them like they are big girls, not babies.

It's so funny, because it seems like now that she knows she's going to the big school, i feel like she's acting like a bit girl. OH, until she decided to play in the sink upstairs this afternoon and didn't have time to make it to the bathroom(which is very rare).

Anyway, please be thinking about me Wednesday, as we begin this new journey! A 12 year journey through school and then another 4 years through college! That seems like a long time..but i know it's not as long as i think.

I hope i'm not rushing her. I could have held her back b/c of her bday. BUT to me, it just wasn't the right thing. There are pros and cons of both. Holding back would mean she'd be really old, pushing forward means she's going to be very young. We're just going to go with it and hope we've done the right thing.

That's all for now, Wednesday, Paul is staying home to watch the girls while i take Hannah for her first day. I'll stay with her 1/2 day Wednesday and then Thursday is the REAL thing. Uniform, waking up really early, feeding everyone as early as i can, etc. I'm stressed, but i'm sure everything will be just fine.

Sorry to keep rambling..just want to get all this down for later!

OMG I sooo know what you are talking about!! Blake starts school for the first time ever next Thursday! This Thursday we get to go to the school, see his classroom, meet the teacher and etc. HOW SAD!!! My little boy is growing up! I know he'll be scared (bcuz that's how he is) but I think that I'll be more scared!! I already took off that whole morning of school! ;o(

I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Your schools start really early, ours don't start til after labor day for most of them. She will do great I'm sure, so glad you will get to go for 1/2 to get her started. Make sure to take some pics so we can all see her on her first day!

wow! Good luck to you all! I'm sure she'll love it and have lots to tell you each day when she gets home!

Carrie & Brook said...

I'll be thinking of you guys! Wow! What a change it's gonna be! Will you be dropping her off every day?

Good luck to Hannah as she enters her school career!

I'll be thinking of you! The first day of school is a hard one! And you're right, the decision to send or keep back is a hard one. We've sent our summer birthdays when they were eligable, because we didn't feel they would benifit from anything being held back. That it would be more for social, rather than educational. educationally they've been tops in their class, so I know I did the right thing!

I'll be thinking about you guys!
