Monday Memories 062::First Day of Preschool

August 2008 - First Daughter's first day of preschool

Today I dropped Third Daughter off at her first day of school.
I had a nostalgic moment driving away from our beloved preschool, thinking back on the first time I dropped off one of my kids at that same preschool.  These pictures were that day.

First Daughter seemed so incredibly old and grown up to me that August morning when I dropped her off for the first time.  It was the first time I had left her somewhere to have an experience completely independent from me.  Now she had her own life, her own friends, her own memories.  It seemed like a gigantic step and the beginning of a new chapter of our family.  I'm pretty sure I left a bit teary eyed that day.

In a couple days she will be starting third grade, Second Daughter will be in first, Third Daughter's in her second year of preschool, and I'll be hanging out at home (and running around playing taxi driver) with the two little boys.  My goodness how time flies and how quickly our family has grown.

I am very much looking forward to the school year. 
I love back to school time and I'm itching for fall. 
It's my favorite time of year :)

But I'm trying not to wish away the days because these pictures are proof that kiddos grow up sooner than you're ready for them to.  And I know I don't even know the beginning of it...
I feel like if I blink they'll all suddenly be teenagers. may also like::
