I didn't shed a single tear at school. In fact I gave a big high five to Jon and congratulated myself on selecting the perfect school and lucking out with a fantastic teacher for Soren. However, at this moment as I am downloading pictures from the camera I am a little misty. How did I manage to grow a Kindergartner in such a short period of time?

Soren is so confident of herself at this moment. This...I am five and I run the world moment. This...I am a girl and I rock moment. She thoroughly anticipated that we would just drop her off on the school house steps and she would find her own way to class. This was the first push off of many to come. The moment where your child looks at you with those eye's that say "get lost, I can handle this on my own".
So I will say adieu to my little girl and embrace this new creature that has emerged. There is no doubt in my mind that you will find your way darling. No doubt at all.

  1. Hi Sonja,
    what a nice post. I can so relate to it, my boy starting at kindergarten also (though he's 4 and really younger than your girl seems to be) and growing up so fast suddenly. Becoming more and more independent each day.
