We've had five straight years of first days at St. Marks. Remember so well dropping Annette and Charlie off when they were 2 and 3 and crying in the car afterwards! Set was here just last year. And this time it was Jane Lauren's turn. I didn't cry, but I was very reflective and sentimental.
Of course, this is the face she kept giving me when I pulled the camera out.
Immediately started playing and didn't cry when I left her, which makes it all so much easier!
It felt like the beginning of a lot more ' my-last-baby-to-do-this ' moments to come.
A bit of heartbreak right there, but a true blessing too.
Luke 2:19 ''But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.''
