Sniff, Sniff

My eyes have filled with tears on several occasions today thinking that this is my last full day with this sweet girl before school starts tomorrow.  Alexa has been a true joy to our family.  She has been my sidekick, sounding board and audience for 5 years.  She is sensitive, caring, honest, joyful, trusting and so, so funny!  I am grateful she will be going into the very capable hands of Mrs. Wright.  This is the beginning of the rest of her life.  I am no longer there to protect her, teach her or just love on her.  I know she will be amazing and my tears are truly tears of pride and love (with a tiny bit of longing to home school......I MEAN TINY BIT!!!).  Good luck my little butterfly, spread those wings ~ I am excited to see your future!!!
