I just sat there with a pen and notebook next to me. The only notebook in our house that had more than a couple empty pages. Purple ink (because its a favorite color around here) covers one page full of school information for my big Kindergartner. How were we there already?
Typical mom thought right? I've seen post after post about "their First Day", and how "I cried in the car", not realizing how fast our big moment is approaching. In August my oldest started Kindergarten. I was ready. Not in the typical "they are driving me crazy" or "I'm so ready to have time without them" type way. There were a lot of big changes happening in our life.
Our Kindergartner started school with kids she's never seen before, not even one was a familiar face. There wasn't a neighborhood carpool, or the excitement of seeing a neighbor/church friend in class- at least not at first.
Just weeks after our 5 year old started school we packed up our first home and moved to our next step. Though we didn't move very far, just to the next city over, and only a couple main roads our lives changed.
We closed one chapter and started another. And that is why I was ready for my oldest to go to Kindergarten.
