think: first day.

today i sent big girl off for her first day of school.
last year she went to a little preschool two mornings a week for a couple hours; but this year she'll go every day, all afternoon. i have to say, the past couple weeks found me really looking forward to her first day of school. i knew the structure would be good for both of us and i was excited to get back into a routine.
but...when this morning finally came and i helped her pick out her outfit and brush her hair, i got a little teary thinking about how much she has grown and changed. any long-time readers of this blog know that piper has always been a bit of a challenge for me; but in her defense, she's gone through a lot more than the average four year old. Lord knows i don't make a good single mom, and the past couple years have been a bit of a roller coaster for all of us. 
but the first day of school almost seems like a fresh start.
a chance for us to have a little time apart, but continue to learn and grow together.

  5. Over time even a small crack in the caulk can allow enough moisture to penetrate to allow mold, mildew
    or rot to take hold. The Masterbuilt designers added a drain clip to the fry basket which permits you to hang the basket on the side of the fryer as the turkey drains and cools.

    Start an inspiration file and share it with your designer during your initial meetings.
