Almost Back to School and already Crying

My oldest daughter Sophia going back to school is something I've gone through for five years now. And while I'm excited for her because she's excited, I have just gotten used to it. But there's nothing NOTHING like their first day in school ever.
Her first day in Kindergarden was a day I will never forget. It was filled with excitement and happiness and soo much sadness all bundled up together. She was thrilled to be there though. I am blessed to have a daughter who loves learning and was eager to play with friends, so the first day of school was something she looked forward to. Gary and I took her to school and stayed with her for about 30 minutes but when she was at peace and settled we had to go. I didn't want to but I had to. She was ready but I cried all my way home. 

And now I get to do it all over again. It is NOT a day I want to repeat. But again, I have to. My second daughter Camila is now entering Kinder and I am already prepping myself for a tear feast. I have her an adorable horse backpack, her new clothes ready and most importantly her school supplies. She's ready for school, she's thrilled but I'm not so sure I'm ready. I'm not ready to let her go. 

While this is going to be a day she might not remember, it will be another day I will never forget.
