away she goes.

i don't want my children to follow in my footsteps.  i want them to take the path next to me and go further than i could have ever dreamt possible.

i don't know where i first heard or saw that quote, but it stuck with me.  especially that day 6 weeks ago, when we got her dressed in her very best, carefully braided her hair and made her stand on the front steps for the ceremonial first day of school photo opportunity.  her first day of kindergarten.  from the moment she was born, it all seemed too far away.  but now it's here.  how did it arrive so quickly?  where did my little one go?

she rode the bus to and from for the first day.  she was excited, said she loved it, and then said she didn't want to do it again.  more on that to come.  it's been a battle.

we are so very proud of her and the arrival to her big school debut.  i took a few moments to interview her on her first day, and record some of her favorite things at this time.  i look forward to seeing how this changes yearly.
