First Day of School!

First Day of School 2013

I cannot believe that Abby had her first day of Pre-K today! Despite the early wake up, the day started off fabulously with a little girl excited to start her “big girl” school, learn new things, and make some new friends! She is growing up way too fast!

It is hard to believe that around this same time four years ago, I was heading back to work after maternity leave and I was crying in the car after dropping her off at daycare for the first time. So much has happened in the past four years and I am so thankful for each and every moment. In the midst of infertility and then a roller coaster adoption journey, at times I never thought that I would ever become a mother but God is good and faithful and we are overflowing with gratitude for His amazing blessing and the honor gifted us by her birthmother to parent such an amazing little girl!

For Pre-K, they do a stagger start to help the kids get adjusted so today was her only day of school for the week but after Labor Day it is full steam ahead! Cheers to new friends and experiences (and homework)!

I love hearing from you!

    • She just finished her first full week today and it was definitely a challenge trying to get back into a routine after being at home all summer and there were tears at every drop-off. I know it is just a phase and it will pass! It can be hard to watch her cry for you though! Next week will be better, I know it!
