Kind of a hard to see picture, but..
That is Allison, my sweet four year old. She had her end of year program at her school last night. That's her, walking out, looking for us in the audience.. She saw us about 30 seconds after this picture was taken and her whole face just lit up.. it was a very sweet moment..
They showed a slideshow of pictures set to music for each class in the school.. I kept whispering to my husband that I was sure I was going to cry.. somehow, miraculously, I held it together. Crying is for next year, when she'll wear a yellow cap and gown...and no, I will not hold it together then.. I am a sappy, sappy mommy, yes i am.
Oh - and thanks for all of the sweet birthday wishes.. It was a great day.. a little introspective, but I need that every so often.. and spent with my family, so, couldn't ask for it better than that.
