Our Warrior Starts 1st Grade
I know it’s cliche to have mixed emotions about the first day of school. I walked Jillian and Sienna to their line up dots on the playground this morning. Sien found her friends as usual. And Jillian gripped my hand tightly as she waited for her new teacher to lead the line of students into the building. I had to let go as she walked into the building…and of course I couldn’t hold back the tears. I feel so silly crying. But the truth is, this is yet another moment that was almost taken from me… From her… From all of us. I don’t take any of these moments for granted. So have a Kleenex and an adult beverage….Here’s to the first day of school! Cheers!
