In one week, my sweet baby girl, Ella, will be starting Kindergarden. It's so hard for me to believe! It is very bittersweet as I soak up this last week with my girls at home all day together. They have so much fun playing, swimming, and sometimes fighting with each other:) It will be a big adjustment for us all with a new schedule, early mornings, and only one at home (until November atleast).
It's also a tough day for me because on this day, August, 19th, it will be 3 years since my Mom went to Heaven. My prayer recently has been for Peace on this day as I adjust to not having my baby girl at home with me and as I remember a very tough day for me and my family as we still grieve for my Mom. It will be hard for me to take my baby to the same school where I still often look down the hallway and wish my Mom was still teaching 5th grade (as she did for 15 years there). I will have to remind myself that even though she is not at that school watching over her like I wish she was, she is in Heaven, a much better place, watching over her there! We have Ella's Open House tonight and she is so excited about starting school (which will hopefully make it a little easier for me!)
