Miss Elizabeth started 5th grade
at Kent Prarie Elementary School today.
Yes, I shed a tear as the bus drove away this morning. Every September it hits home that my baby is growing up. Every September, I load my baby onto a bus and watch it drive off to a world that is hers to navigate without me (for the most part). Every September I hope and pray that she finds a good place in her world and will have a year filled with the joy of learning and the joy of friendship. And, every September, I realize it's nice to be alone to get my work done, but it's nicer to have my summertime pal around to distract me.
