I read somewhere that being a parent is a lifelong process of learning to let go, truths of the statement ringing evident repeatedly just this past week. We have said goodbye to summer and our beloved pool. Zoë and Zane started school. Just yesterday, we said goodbye to a little stuffed bunny.
Today, Zia started Pre-K. She was been asking for weeks when school started and it nearly pushed her over the edge to send her big brother and sister off to school last week without her. She was ready–whether I am or not.
I take great comfort in knowing that she is excited about school and will be well cared for there. I also know that no matter how much they may fight, argue and bicker they love each other and are a team.
Have fun at school, guys and take care of each other! The twins and I will be here when you get home anxious to hear of your adventures.
