Trish gave us our prompt today, and asked us to share the neatest thing we've seen in nature. Frankly, I think just about everything in nature is amazing. But especially food. You plant a little tiny rock-looking thing, and a few weeks later you have a vegetable to serve to your family. How is that possible? And butterflies. That's just about the craziest thing ever. Start as a worm, transform into a gorgeous, flying creature. Amazing.
I've got growth on the mind today. It was Emma's last day of preschool. Of course, the moms were all sobbing and the kids were pinging off the wall, excited about Kindergarten. I made a card for her teachers with pictures from the first and last day of school, last year and this. She has gone from the tiniest kid in school to one of the leaders of the pack. Again, amazing. Tomorrow I sign her up for kindergarten. One of my friends will be watching George so that Emma and I can have some time together. She won't understand the significance (just like she couldn't understand why tears were leaking out from under my sunglasses as we drove away from school today), but I do. My first born is starting to leave the nest. I know I've got many years to go, but I have to start now. It will take me that long to get used to the idea. Who am I kidding? Like I'll get used to it! Yeah, right.
