Tomorrow morning I will drop this little girl off at her 1st grade classroom. She has tried her entire life to catch up to her big sister and now it has kind of happened. She is "finally" in school all day, just like her sister. I'm going to miss her quiet, gentle personality.
In two weeks, I'm going to drop this little girl off at her second year of preschool. She has been stubborn and a fighter since the moment she was conceived. I brought home her tiny little body from the hospital and she has been doing things her way, ever since. I won't lie...I'm going to enjoy the 2 1/2 hours of quiet, from her being gone. :)

I teach you to forgive,
so that you will know it's okay to make mistakes.

I teach you, but all along you teach me...
how important my job really is.
