Macie's First Day

I love the quote by Elizabeth Stone that says, "Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body".

My heart boarded a bus this morning... And in the words of her dad, "the big yellow bus that may as well have been taking her to prison". Now, we of course, know school is a wonderful place and a great adventure for Macie that she will love. But...when her face went from smiles, to nervous giggles, to all out tears, the bus sure did feel like some strange torture mobile.

Just as I was offering to drive her, she took those steps with the help of her big sister and was on her way. I am sure she did great today. I am sure she loved kindergarten. And I am sure Jamie and I will be okay, too. But I am counting down the 20 minutes until that little, adorable piece of my heart comes home and I get to hear all about it.

Oh my gosh. I am crying my eyes out. I know she had a great day. I can't wait to hear all about it! Thank goodness it is just half a day because I would surely die if it was all day long.

Tell Macie that Grandma got up early to pray for her. Those tears made her look more like her dad on his first day of school...and almost every year thereafter!

Is that a scared look or tears in the second to last picture?

I have been thinking of you and the girls all week. Hope you are doing well. Love, Becky
