This past week has been hectic, between daily drama and getting ready for Marley to start school on Monday...it's been hard to find time to breathe.
But then, this past Thursday, I was reminded of why I do all that I do as a mom. We were on our way to Open House at her school to meet her 4th grade teacher. All week long she had been nervous, because she has heard how much harder 4th grade can be. I keep reminding her that 4th grade is harder than 3rd grade because she is learning new stuff. But that's what makes her smarter and more driven to be successful, and for that, I'm so proud of her.
Finally, when we rounded the corner of the road and she saw her school, she got excited, and she took this shot:
After meeting her teacher, seeing her classroom, and discovering who her classmates are going to be, she was really excited, and began looking forward to Monday.
I'm not sure if I'm truly ready for my "baby" to be a 4th grader, but I'm glad she finally is...
