I toured The Franciscan School, the elementary school associated with our church, today. I can't say that I didn't cry (I can't say that because there were witnesses) before the tour and I can't say that I won't cry as I write this post (actually, I can't see me). It was a wonderful tour and it answered a lot of questions that I had. I walked away feeling good about our decision to send Caroline there and about the level of education, faith, and the environment of this school. I should be thrilled that our sweet girl is growing and thriving, and that she is prepared for this next step of life, but the truth is that I am terribly saddened about it all going so quickly. 

When my sister in law went through this last year with sending our nephew to Kindergarten, she posted this poem and it certainly does fit.

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
~Dr. Seuss


  1. Your making me cry.......


  2. Oh my! Kindergarten already! I can't imagine (yet) what this must feel like for you, but it sounds like she will be in good hands. And just think, more wonderful, new experiences to be had with your precious Caroline as she grows up. You're such a good mommy.
