Dear Caraline.....

you started school for the second time today.
though this time was a little different for all of us.
it was the first time mommy has had to pack a lunch.
and yes I shed a few tears while making your PB&J.
last year you only went for a few hours, this time its longer.
I am going to seriously miss you while you are at school but I know that it is where you need to be.
this first day all I have done is wonder what you are doing?
are you talking to your teacher, to your classmates? are you nervous? are you laughing? are you ok?
you are still a shy one and my prayer/goal for you this year is that you will continue to come out of your shell and start to speak to people a little more each and every day.
I think about how we prayed together this morning before we went on our way and how mommy teared up during our prayer.
they were not sad tears sweetie, they were proud/happy mommy tears.
I am so proud of the little lady you are turning into,  the sweet heart that you have and the love you have for your family and those around you.
I can't wait to see how you grow in the year to come.
to hear about the new friends that you make.
the stories you tell me when I pick you up.
and how you get to continue to learn about God's love while at school this year.
you are one amazing little girl and I love you with all my heart.

Happy 4 year old preschool day!
(Even though you are not 4 until tomorrow!!!)
