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."

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.
