It's Time, Baby.

Or should I say, "It's time, little girl."

I knew it was coming. I knew you were ready. And I knew that that you were excited.

What I didn't know, was that I would see 5 years flash right before my eyes as I watched you walk into your classroom in your little uniform and amazingly cute button knee highs.

Wasn't it just yesterday that God gave you to us?
And wasn't it just a minute ago when you were standing at your 1st birthday party doing animal sounds for everyone?

My mothers voice saying: "before you know it, she'll be starting School...", rings so loud in my ears today.

But as I've said, You can't fence time, and Kindergarten is calling. We asked God for direction, and believe He showed us an amazing school for our family.

You are indeed ready, my smart, savvy little girl. Have fun, learn a lot, and stop growing so stinkin' fast :).

I love you, my sweet Ella Girl.

If you need me - I'll be in the car, trying to pull myself together :).

It's Time, Baby.
