Essie goes to school...

Today after church Corbin asked me how I was feeling about our YOUNGEST starting kindergarten tomorrow. For eleven+ years now we've had babies at home, so tomorrow is the start of a whole new season.
I responded that I was a little sad that we'd been so busy lately, I hadn't had much time to process it all... and before I could finish my sentence, I dissolved into tears.

Just yesterday she was learning this...

And tomorrow morning she'll be dressed in her "First day of school" uniform, marching off to school right after her big sister and brothers.
 
Yippee and Boo Hoo!

Wow! I can still remember when Essie transitioned into the Toddler room at church! T.J. I can't stand the idea of you being home alone. I'll bring Jonathan over by 9 and be back later tonight. ;)

I can't believe it! What an exciting time for you! Can't wait to see what God does in your life as your "free" time for writing expands.

How did she get so old. Feel like Joseph should still be a toddler too!

One of my favorite memories of my birthdays growing up was the "you are special today" red plate. I saw this in your photo, and it brought a smile to my face! One day your kids will be fighting over that plate!
