First day of Pre-school (summer-camp)!

I can hardly believe it. My little girl is old enough to go to pre-school. We've been talking about it for months and it was this very idea that had her encouraged to get potty-trained fast. She's been talking about her teacher, Mrs. Reive, and the things that she MUST tell her, for months now, too.

I couldn't resist taking these first-day-of-school pictures. Reflecting on this morning, I realize I was pretty anxious for her and her big day and her first time in the classroom. Yesterday, I kept telling her with excitement that she was "going to school tomorrow." After a few times, she said, "can you please quit telling me that I am going to school tomorrow?" Smart, funny girl. Here she is in all her cuteness. Unfortunately, she fell and skinned her face on the sidewalk the other day, but still, she is so very cute.

My favorite girl

The first of the take-home treasures...
The horse and the cowboy beads on the bracelet have all to do with the Cowboy theme at school this week.

It feels as though we've officially began the part of Brooklynn's life where we rely on others to help shape the life of our daughter. It's with excitement that I encourage her in this new stage, but with a smidge of ache as I come to terms with the very fact that she's not a baby anymore, and hardly a toddler. My little sweet-spirit is becoming a young girl, who will, before I know it, be a young woman. Cherish, cherish, cherish I tell myself. Nothing lasts forever. It will get better, but there is no returning to where it all started. Remember. Love. Breathe in the memories. Smile and even cry a little.

She looked so cute in those pictures. I can just imagine how she will love it. She is a little social butterfly and a sweetheart. I'm so excited for her.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
