Isla's First Day of Preschool

It's hard to believe that my little 4 year old is starting preschool.
When I say that, I don't mean that these 4 years have gone by quickly.
I mean that I cannot believe that the day is here and she's starting preschool - five days a week.

To my Isla Rose....

This is a new beginning for you that will come with meeting new people, making lifelong friends, new challenges and new obstacles you'll have to overcome.  With each new day, I will continue to pray that you you never forget how special you are and that you will NEVER give up.  Even when  your vision fails you, I know you will continue to push forward, keep going and keep smiling.  That's just the kind of soul you are.  I love your confidence, Isla Rose.

This morning, you walked right into your classroom to start your new journey and reminded us that you were "a big girl now".  It was definitely an emotional moment when I saw you let go of your Daddy's hand to make your way in to listen to your teachers instructions.  These tiny but big moments I will hold in my memories for as long as I live.

I know you will stand for big things and I know the courage you've had to hold on to has found a strength that we are so thankful for.  The tears that I have cried are because of how happy you make me and the impact I know you will make on those that walk beside you. This is such a big milestone for you (for us too) because this path has been so much more different that we had envisioned in the beginning.  We stand in awe of you today.

Happy First Day of Preschool, Isla Rose.
We love you.
