kindergarten

oh my poor neglected blog… for my first post in months I thought I’d try to express what my mind has been occupied with these past couple months.  kindergarten.  my baby girl is now a kindergartener.  five days a week for the majority of her day her life is influenced by others besides myself.  have I done my job as a mother to prepare her for this step?  did i take my time with her at home forgranted?  we have all adjusted… her better than I.  she has amazed me with how well she has adjusted to the too early mornings and unfamiliar environment.  she loves it… and as she tells me- now I have to make sure and play with “brother”… which apparently has been her job until now ;)  she is thinking of his happiness in her new situation.  she makes me proud beyond words, she is kind, compassionate and sensitive but also adventurous and brave.  I love you Avery Reese Parker, I know God has amazing plans for you and this is just the beginning.

I did a “kindergarten session” with Avery in hopes that it would deter me from going too kindergarten paparazzi on her first day… but it didn’t really.

and some from her first day…
