first day of school!

6:00 am- wake up: "I'm going to school today!!!!!!"
6:45- inspect whats in her lunch box today: strawberries, edamame, dora yogurt, crackers, peas.
6:47- put her (DORA!!!) lunch box in backpack, put backpack on (and wont take it off until she gets to school).
7:05- "Is it time to go to school yet, mommy?"
7:15- "Um, I wanna pony tail."
 7:40- hop on the bike, give kisses, say "I love you's".
 7:45 Lily and Chad ride off to her first day of preschool.
Chad said she didn't even look back when she said good-bye to him.
I think, she's going to be juuuuuust fine.

Eden and I went for a long walk, threw rocks in the creek, went to the store, now she's taking a nap and I am sitting here in a quiet house. No tears from me today (amazing right?), I am just so happy for Lily, and happy that Eden and I get this great one one one time. And so happy that prayers are answered.
