~ Dr. Seuss
Today Hallie finishes elementary school. I can hardly type that sentence without bursting into tears, as it feels like just yesterday I walked her through the front doors of her elementary school and delivered her to her kindergarten classroom for the first time.
For me, the baby and toddler years moved at a glacial pace. The preschool years passed by a bit more quickly, but the elementary school years? I blinked and found myself suddenly at the finish line.
Hallie begins intermediate school in less than three months, and I have no doubt those days and weeks and months will fly by more quickly than I'd like. I feel nothing but proud of the incredible young woman she is becoming, but what I wouldn't give to hold onto these big little girl years for just a while longer.
I should have started with a bigger shirt... 😂
Sweet girl...today may feel like an ending, but it is also the beginning of your next beautiful and exciting adventure. You can handle whatever comes your way as long as you remember to work hard, to be kind, and that your mama loves you.
