Today was Lily's first day of KINDERGARDEN!
I look at this picture and just smile and am so happy it makes my heart kind of hurt?
Lily LITERALLY is the happiest human I know. She is such a light.
I am so happy for her, to be in school. She has been ready since last year. And I am LOVING having a routine set and days having a plan. Its nice, and with three at home for some reason, it was hard for me to do that on my own. Anyways, tangent from what I was trying to document....I think the reason taking your babies to kindergarden is so happy, yet heart breaking is because it becomes very real that your kids are God's kids. That they come to this life for the same reason I did, to learn and grow to become what God wants them to become. And, They didn't come into my life just to be my kid.
Which, is wonderful. I know Lily will move mountains, in her very happy, kind, silly way. She will. The world is a happier place with her in it.
Eden, oh my sweet Eden. Lily is her other half. They do EVERYTHING together. This year will be a big adjustment. Lily won't be with her 24/7 anymore, AND she starts pre-school next week! Their goodbye was so dramatic and sweet. A very long, and tight embrace:E:"I'm gonna miss you Wilwy."
L:"I'm going to miss you too, Eden."
E:"And...are you gonna miss my weindeew (reindeer), too?"
And then just like that, we left, and she stayed.
And we began a whole new stage in life.
