Today is a sad, but exciting day.
Big Sister went to kindergarten roundup.
I know it's just one day, the big day doesn't come until August when she actually starts school. But this is the beginning. And it's exciting.
This is the start of my little girl growing up. Before you know it, we'll be going to school plays, music recitals and basketball games.
We'll get to help her as she learns to read, tell time and add and subtract.
But this is also the end. And it's sad.
From now on our days will revolve around waiting for Big Sister to get home from school before we can play. We will be relegated to taking vacations during the same crowded times that every one else takes them.
But most of all, it means she is growing up. She's not just my baby anymore. In no time at all she'll be driving, then dating and going off to college.
Yes, it's the natural order of things and I have to accept it.
