Of school, that is. This morning I sent off my most prized possessions--my kids. Savannah is beginning the 6th grade today...in middle school, no less. Mariah trotted happily off to 4th grade and Isaiah was sitting contently in his kindergarten class when I left. I don't know which was harder, dropping off Savannah at her bus stop or walking out the door of the elementary school with my other 2 back inside. As happy as I am that school has finally begun, I am painfully aware of much I'm going to miss them. And how much I want them to be OK. This is a big day for them, but also a huge day for me. Every time they start a new school year, it takes them further and further away from being my "babies". Bittersweet? Without a doubt.
So here's to my 3 Chocolate Brownies on their First Day of School. Mommy loves you, is so proud of you, and is saying a little prayer for you all right now.
