the last first day

^Camping lakeside last weekend.  A rare, unimpeded, photo of this kid.^

Juniper Autumn's (last) First Day of Preschool
September 9, 2014
^Last-minute toast with Grandma as we run out the door.^  
As of this writing I have no clue what next year holds.  Will we homeschool?  Will I send her away for a 9 hour day (counting the 2 hour roundtrip bus ride) to Kindergarten? Will we move?  Four years ago we couldn't conceptualize this predicament, let alone how soon it would come.

:: As for Hazel's first morning home alone, she chose to dress like a bear and sail to her heart's content.  "I said high mama!  That's not high.  HIGH!!!"  


  1. She looks huge, like tall and not so much a little chicken anymore, that June-Bug of yours. Two hour bus ride??? I'm not thrilled about Kindergarten either, but a two hour bus ride!!! Boo-sauce.

  2. Wow, lots of big choices ahead. I know you'll find a way to sort them out with love and the very best intention. xo

  3. Can't believe I missed this post. Its such a heart tugging time when the school year starts. I certainly felt it each time. You'll make the right decisions xxx


What say you? I want to hear it!
