~ 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... 😂
