Dear Roo: Best Buds

This past month there has been an amazing amount of change going on in your life.

Despite all my protests and affirmations that you were going to be home schooled.... you started pre-school.

At a church of all places.

And you know what, you love it.

And you know what, I love that you love it.

I did want to home school you for selfish reasons. You are my best bud, my sidekick, my big girl... and the thought of you leaving me for three hours a day, five days a week KILLED me.

But when I pick you up from school and you're so happy and excited and you tell me about everything you did that day and how much fun you had and you name all of your best friends, I know I made the right choice.

I see the changes in you and I marvel at it.

You like to sing songs now (which before made you embarrassed... or maybe it was my loud, obnoxious singing that made you embarrassed?), your skills at letters and numbers have improved, you can write your name like a pro and you can tell me bible stories!

You are an inspiration to me and I am so proud of you.

I love you so much and even though you are not with me for three hours a day, five days a week you still are my best bud.

They grow so fast! I'm glad she's enjoying school.

I bet that it's doing her so much good to be able to play with other kids and to get out of the house without mom for a little bit!
