These are not the hard ones. (Emily- first day of Second Grade- she's seven years old)
Although I will miss them both with every ounce of my being, I have (kind of) gotten used to them being gone to school (almost).
And they are ready and excited to get back at it.
It's been a full and wonderful summer and I have so enjoyed having them here to enjoy swimming, riding bikes, lunches, picnics, playgrounds................great, now I'm tearing up.
Regardless, these two little girls are already missed- but them leaving feels normal.
I've had a day or two to get used to them leaving me for hours on end five days a week.
