Sara Ava's Big Day

" Yes, my backpack is as big as I am!"

Today I sent Sara Ava off to her first day of Kindergarten. Waaaa! This is not something I was looking forward to at all! I taught her pre-school at home, so she has never really been away from me that much in the almost 3 yrs that she has been home. In about 4 more weeks we will celebrate her 3rd Gotcha Day. It doesn't seem all that long ago that we brought her home and now I am sending her to school. Like me dad said yesterday, " She's not old enough to go to school" , doesn't seem like it! Well, I am afraid she is....... she is 5 yrs and 7 mo. old.
Lilee will be lost without Sara Ava during the day. Sara Ava is Lilee's personal slave...... literally. She orders her around all day, but Sara Ava does it for her. I am saying ,"Say Please Lilee" all day long!!!! Those 2 are best buddies and play great together.
I thought today would be mine and Lilee's first day home by ourselves, but Josiah is home from his 6th day of school with a really high fever. So no movies for Lilee and I today. Looks like we will be at the Dr. instead. Ugh! That is the problem with school ..... it keeps kids sick! We have been well all summer long and the first week of school we have a sick one. So much for perfect attendance. Please pray this does not go through our family like a wild fire, but like school I am sure it will since we have so many people in our house.
