I cried while editing these photos. I think I was crying because she is ready to be nine. And I think I’m ready for her to be nine. I think I’m ready for a new year with her, for seeing what God has in store for her, for watching her grow and bloom and shine.
Normally I’m not ready. But for some reason this year I am. I kind of like that feeling. That feeling like through her, God is causing me to grow up a little bit, too.
Here she is….her last day of eight. Right before bed tonight. My heart is full of love for her.
