End of an Era

This afternoon Jenny and I sat down and filled her lavender Hello Kitty backpack with a pencil case, a Bible, a pack of crayons that I would have died for at her age, and her lunch bag, carefully labeling everything with a permanent marker.

Tomorrow my baby goes to school.

Quote of the Day:
"I think there’s room in the backpack for my cuddly-blankie too."
--Jenny, in a timid little voice. Not sure who’s gonna need that blankie more, her or me.

    I guess the Lord was kind to me. I have only one child. I had the first one leave and the last one leave for school the very same day. I can't quite imagine going through five or six times. It would have been much harder if I hadn't been teaching at her school.

  5. Aubrey was worried about wearing her Raggedy Ann and Andy school-themed jumper. She was afraid that everyone was going to laugh at her.
