Is anything better than back to school time?

Tomorrow is our dd's first day of 3rd grade......where has the time gone? She's over-the-moon excited to go, today we visited classrooms, took pictures, etc., and she can't wait!
Me, I'm a little sad......excited for her but sad at the same time. This is what she needs to grow in every way, and I'm so happy for her in her excitement! I do remember what it was like, the anticipation, the smells, the nerves...all of it. The supplies, seeing old friends.
For me, the first few days are the hardest......it's really quiet around the house, all my activities are based around her pick-up time..........and I can't wait for that!
"How was your first day, what was for lunch, what did you do on the playground, who did you play with?"
Sigh........a new routine is beginning.....

These really are the best times of your life! Your daughter is a blessed little girl to have you.
(And, the only thing better is when you get to have grandkidlets and help at school in their class!)

It is a strange feeling to have the house to yourself. Hope you have a terrific day tomorrow as well as your little girl.
