The sweet little girl below started kindergarten with a quiet bravery.
Where Grace bravely entered kindergarten, with no tears, confidently going to a new school, confidently meeting new friends, I struggled. This was a big step for me in letting her go. But, I watched her confidence and her quiet bravery and I learned from her.
This past year, Grace learned to read and write. She learned how to do a push up and run a mile! She learned how to navigate life (if only in a small part) without me.
And, I learned to sit back and proudly watch her shine.
