Today Yesterday was NOT the day.
But it was a preview.
The grumpy kid? Not mine (for once). The one standing peacefully in line, hands relaxed at her sides? Mine. What you can't see are the little shivers of excitement that raced through her body every few seconds.
Yesterday was bus safety day; when our little Kindergartners got to learn about the bus and the rules. They even took a little ride so they'd know what to expect next week when they have to do it for real. NOW is the time to work out any fears or problems.
The only fears are my own, and the only forseeable problem is letting her go. She's happy to fly off to the next adventure.
I'm just going to miss her.
