and just like that, she's a preschooler. we all walked to school together, she played outside in the schoolyard, i hung her backpack on her hook, dropped her lunchbox in her class bin, she sat down at a table to do a project, we hugged and kissed her and then didn't know what to do.
the experienced parents waved us towards the door with a "run while you can!" expression, and alex and i took each others' hands and left! this was our last view of her until 3pm:
she's doing great, we're doing great, and it's all so good!
