did you know...

that today is National Walk to School Day? Well lucky for Ruby, she gets to walk to school every day. In fact, one of the highlights of my day is bidding farewell to my husband and daughter before he walks her to school each morning. I stand at the front door and watch as they stroll, hand in hand, down the street and around the corner. Back and forth we take turns shouting "I love you", over and over...until finally, the two of them have disappeared from my view. Without exception, this is the precise moment in which a brief pang of despondency slices through my heart...

That is so cute! And athough it is so fun to see them grow up...there is always something sad about it too!
