This morning was a big morning for our family. I clenched my fists, took deep breaths and smiled in the face of vulnerability. Jesse and I drove our almost four year old to her first day of junior kindergarten.

I remind myself that she is ecstatic. I remind myself that she weighed her options and came to her own decision. I remind myself that in the case of failure that we are fortunate enough to have options. I will not project my fears and assume the worst. She is not me and is not destined to live my experience and feel my feelings. She is so brave and powerful and she ran to the playground without looking back.

Today is Georgia's first day of school.
