a new day

Today was one of those bittersweet days when you painfully, but very happily with full and proud heart, see the very hard & true evidence that your children are in fact growing, blossoming and becoming the finest of little people.

Today my oldest is now a 5th grader!!! And my baby graduated from kindergarten.  Big brother got to participate in the ceremony by welcoming little brother to lower elementary.  Yes, I cried. A new age begins.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

    I love that Dr. Seuss quote…have been trying to teach it to my kids when they cry because they have to come inside from playing outdoors, or leave a playdate, etc.
