Wow she will be 5 on September 13th!!! I just can't hardly believe my girls are all growing up old enough to go to school. Of course she isn't old enough to start public 5 yr old kindergarden so we are sending her to a private school. Her mommy is not sure yet if she will attend there next year or go into public school. Her outfit of course is made by me it is hard to tell in this picture but it is an apple print by Sally Henderson and a dot print by Amy Butler that I got on our last trip to the beach from TJ's fabric.
This picture brought tears to my eyes, I love that she is getting to play and learn with other children but it is also bittersweet to leave her by herself with strangers and let her really be out by herself in this world away from her mommy and I. Taking care of my grandchildren while their moms work really has brought me closer to them than I think most grandparents get to be. I know she is in a great school with christian loving teachers but the nonnie in me wants her to stay safe in our arms and in our homes where we can protect her. Funny how I am having the same sadness that I had when her mommy started to preschool even thought I went with her, ( I taught two doors down in the 2yr old class).
