|Kayla is our little cousin who blends right in.|
This is the last day before school starts for our most precious, special, creative, artistic, fragile, rhythmic Ruby. She starts Kindergarten. It absolutely has not hit me.
The sun was just right today. There was a breeze at that park that was perfect and would not be compromised. The girls chased each other and swung and ate sammies that Grace packed in our picnic basket (a plastic bin with a blanket over it).
They were kind and sassy and had a few fights. On the way home we listened to the hook of a rock song over and over and over. Each time, Ruby's toothless grin shot out exuberance and happiness as her arms swung in the air like noodles. As Grace danced and shook she looked at Ruby with all the love in the world.
I'm so grateful that they have each other.
