It felt awful.
The next year was a trifle better.
And the next just a little bit better.
But today?? Oh my!
Katya was so excited to be going back to her good school! From the moment she woke up enough to realize what she was up to today, she was happy!
She was eager to get outside and wait for her ride to arrive.
She was patient with us taking photos!
And excited about us taking pictures! (She was so tickled with her new shoes!)
We thought Katya looked so "big girl" today.
Katya was truly happy to be going back to the school in the Big City, and it showed all over her!
No tears, just a quick kiss on the cheek from her after I buckled her into the school van, and then she signed, "Good-bye--Go!" and happily went off.
We are so happy for her. Praying she has an absolutely fantastic year this year!
