4th grader.

Well, we have already completed an entire week of school. That went by quick, right!? 
Savannah is mostly liking the 4th grade, but it is obviously still way to early to tell. I think I have worried more about this year than any other. Paul has had to tell me to chill out, which I am definitely trying to.

I think when we are new Mommy's we assume parenting gets easier the older your children get. Truth is, problems/worries/stress just change. I use to worry about sleepless nights with Savannah, now I worry about her being able to stand up for herself in a world that is crazy hard. At the time sleepless nights was a big deal and hard for me, now we face different challenges.
I cried when I dropped her off at the school. I want her to have the best experience possible, and it is clearly something I don't have a lot of control over. I want her to see her own potential, make lasting friendships, and smile more...cry less.

***
Things have definitely been more quiet around the house without her here. The babies took a reeeaaallly long nap yesterday, and I didn't mind one bit. I am more productive waking up early, even though I would rather not be a morning person. I have taken the babies to do a couple of things this week without Savannah, but I am excited to start up our Friday afternoon field trips when we pick her up from school.

Your blog seems to be very nice to me too. I have no plastic pots for sale though.
