The first day...

Rachel starts pre-school today.
She was super excited, and was dressed and ready to go in record time this morning.
I really wanted to watch her get on the bus, but we decided that it would be best if I wasn't there.

So, instead, I checked the clock every minute, wondering where she was and what she was doing.

I hugged her good-bye, and when she saw tears in my eyes she said, "Don't worry mommy, I'll be back soon, and then I'll tell you all about my day."

This chalk board was made from a piece of slate that was
used in the one-room school house my dad went to
as a child.

The camera lens kept fogging over from the high humidity.
I can't believe this day is already here...
And she's off...
She'll go to daycare and get on the bus with the big kids.

Rachel starts pre-school today, and I start graduate school.
The Fall 2014 semester also starts today.
My classes start tomorrow.
