Ella has one week of first grade under her belt. Early childhood is officially behind her and we are changed. Where have six and a half years gone? Days that dragged on forever turned into years that slipped through my hands in a moment. So in a weak attempt to stretch the next eleven and half years, I'll start posting in this space again. As I looked back on the old posts, I was so glad to have saved all those sweet memories in some way. I also wish I would have written about the not so sweet days. Days when we were sick, tired, bored and cranky. Times when I ran out of ideas and everyone was crying at once. Times when I lost patience and wisdom flew out the window. Those times will be included from now on, hence the new title, "Warts and all". Because I love this, these girls, this time, our life, warts and all.
(Just to be clear, nobody here actually has warts. But if they did, I would still love them - from a distance.)
