first day?

I know I have been absent online. I think a lot of people have been over the summer, so I assume my lack of postings hasn't been alarming to anyone, and truthfully, I went from having so much to say with no time to post, to simply not feeling the creative urge to put it all out there for everyone to read. Not to mention my photos haven't been all that inspired lately.

So much has been happening, mostly with respect to our children's educations.

Lala's school endured a huge move to a space that was previously offices, so has required a lot of community support in transforming it to a school with a playground. (It is still lacking a lot, but time will change this.) All of this time and effort has lead to a lot of thinking for myself and our family.

Finnian has one more year before kindergarten, but his interests have lead me to do a lot of reading and research on homeschooling for this year. This has extended to Lala, so I have put so much thought into our continued educational journey.

To be honest, I am at a standstill, despite the school year now upon us.

So yesterday, Lala had her first day of second grade. First day with a question mark, because in some ways, our summer was so filled with school activities, it felt like it never ended. I want my annual photo marker, though. Boy, this girl has grown. (Sniff...last year and previous year photos.) I think her front teeth are an inch bigger than they were in June. But she is still my sweet, hesitant, transition-shy girl, who took her lovey and kept looking back for mamma until she was safely in her seat, now familiar from all the classroom set up help she had provided.

Onward...one foot in  front of the other, one day at a time, love in my heart.
