After a summer of slothdom the time finally came to pay the piper yesterday.
Whatever that means.
Someone had to get up at 6:30 in the A to the M. And someone else, possibly the first someone's mother, had to get up earlier than that.
Anyway, here's a little peek at Annelise's first day as a fourth grader.
(Pardon the blur, the sun isn't quite up this early.)
We screeched into the parking lot with 15 minutes to spare.
It's all downhill from here.
All too soon it was time to leave, at least that's how I interpreted Annelise's "that's enough picture taking mom" face along with the fact that Mrs. Beaty shut the door.
I found myself strangely choked up, which if you know me you're all like, "What?", but I guess all the changes and all the *new* finally got to me, new school, new grade, 19 new friends...it was all a little much.
But. I held it together.
I'm pretty sure God has got this.
My mama heart was full. And quite happy.
We celebrated later with Annelise's favorite supper, salsa pork chops, green beans and homemade (okay, semi-homemade) blondies and enjoyed hearing all the day's scoop.
Fourth grade, you're going to be pretty sweet.
