It was raining hard on the first day of school this year, so
we I had to settle for indoor pictures.
Of all the ones I took, I think this one is my favorite ..
Hmm, or maybe this one ..
Before we left I
made Katie sit on the floor so that I could had to get a shot of Katie’s nails. Because it took FOREVER to do them the night before and I wanted proof.
Because I thought she’d want to remember them.
The skulls and cross bones either made me the coolest mom ever or the tackiest. Or maybe the coolest tacky mom ever. Jury’s still out, but I think they’re pretty nifty.
And off they went (with the paparazzi trailing close behind) ..
New beginnings are not always easy on our kids – the ones with challenges or the ones without.
Anxiety runs high – for them and for us.
The unknowns can be terrifying.
But so to, there is hope.
Hope that this will be a good year.
A year stocked full of victories – both baby steps and quantum leaps – to celebrate.
This is my hope.
For ALL of our beautiful, wondrous children.
May it be the best year yet.
