Hi Ho, Hi Ho.

Gracie Begs

How do I let this chunk of fluffy beauty go out into the world? HOW? I am absolutely not ready for her to go back to the gritty, stringent kindergarten classroom, sweaty playground and anonymous cafeteria. The school schedule causes us to plunge back into those busy afternoons when she arrives home with murder on the brain and disrupts the peace of our home with the angst, jealousy and unrest that comes from being social and well behaved all day. I'm not ready for it. I want to keep her home, keep the comings and goings away and just listen to her and her sister's voice float through the air at lunch time while my heart beats calmly behind our locked front door.

I know it's crazy and a lot and overwhelming and so much work, but have you thought about homeschooling or charter schools or some other option? I'm struggling with this right now myself.

Keep her home. Levi is proof she'll be fine. In fact, don't send her until 2012.

BEAUTIFUL.

Wait, was Levi homeschooled?

Those freckles. I've always loved the little freckles sprinkled across the nose. Combine it with her dark hair? Gorgeous.

This makes me really, really happy that I haven't reached this point in time yet with my girls. Don't want to let them go...don't want them to change right?
