Boo's Turn - First Day of School (part two)

Where does all of the time go? Is it really possible that my baby started Kindergarten today? Not too long ago, I found myself getting weepy when she graduated from preschool. That really seems like just yesterday, but a whole summer has passed and the girls are back to school.

I swear each year goes by faster and faster. I remember when Boo was born, and was growing quickly, someone told me (my memory is failing me as to whom) " Watch out! They grow fast and before you know it she will be in Kindergarten." Well that day is here and I can hardly believe it.

I have been so excited for her to go, even though I knew I would miss having her home. I figured that it wouldn't be that different from preschool in that she'd only be gone part of the day, and I'd still have my mornings with her. Yet, when I dropped her off and she practically ran into the school, I felt my eyes well up with tears. How could it be that she is already so big, and that both of my girls are in school now?

I just know that each year will pass by quickly, and before I know it, she will be leaving for college. I just want it all to slow down a little, so I can savor every minute of it.

Off and running. . .

Boo arrives home from her big day (and FIRST bus ride!)

Glad to finally be at the same school as Kiki!

Awwww, sisterly love (I treasure these moments)

One very proud big sister (thanks for the flowers, Kiki!)

How lovely - she looks so tiny to be alone on a bus!
