First Day of Kindermusic

New Years Resolution...
keep blogging.

This week was the first day of Kindermusic.
I must admit I was feeling a bit nostalgic.  I was remembering back
to the last two years.  here and here
Boy have things changed.

Today was a little different then our last two years of Kindermusic.
Genevieve would be going it alone this year and Finley tagged along.
He was able to take his very own class.
What a treat to have an entire 45 minutes just me and him.
I think it is safe to say Finn loved it.
He spent the entire class giggling.  

the many faces of Evie

G: "hello Ms. Anne? Yes, we are on our way!"

Dear Joe,

Today will be the last time I kiss you goodbye as you hurry off, back pack in hand.  Today is the last day Genevieve cries at the door.  Today is the last day I have to explain where you are a dozen times before the little ones lay down their heads.  Today is the last night I will stay up late waiting for you.  Today is the last time I wander the house after the kids are tucked in and miss everything about you.  Today is your very last night of school.  No more homework, studying, late nights, missed weekends.  

These past two years have taught me a lot about myself and our relationship.  I have learned I can do hard things.  I have learned we can persevere when we're together.  I've learned what the word "support" really means.  I have had to grow up while you've been away.  These past two years have also taught me a lot about loneliness.  Some nights I never thought I could be so lonely.  There were many times I would lay on the warm cement of the driveway and gaze up at the stars thinking the loneliness might swallow me up but just as those thoughts were too much your headlights would turn down our road and you would be home again.  

I know it hasn't been easy for either of us. Yet through it all you have proven to me you an incredible man.  I knew it the day I married you but I never knew the depth of my love and respect until now.  Joe, you have accomplished so much in these past two years.  A new home, a new baby, countless work trips, your mom passing away and school.  Yet through it all you have never been upset or resentful for the amount of work on your plate.  You have always taken it one day at a time with one patient foot in front of the other.  

I'm so proud of you my dear. I hope you realize the magnitude of your accomplishment.  Not only are you graduating with your MBA but you are graduating with impeccable grades while you continued to raise and support a family, remained my sweetheart, worked long hours and stayed true to who you are.  Your patience and dedication is endless and I am just so proud to know you.

Congratulations my sweetheart.  You deserve all the happiness in the world and I can only hope I will be there to see all of your dreams realized. 

~ your girl.   

(remember this day? first day of school)

congratulations love.
you did it!

First Day of School.

she was just a wee little gal.

it's impossible to get a good picture of a smart and sassy two year old
she did wonderfully.  just like I knew she would.
this year genevieve understood more, caught on quicker and made friends fast.
she is one cute cookie and I'm always one proud mama.

Letters to Genevieve

Sweet girl, 

My how you are growing.  One moment I was nuzzling your soft newborn head and with one blink I found myself taking you to your first dance class.  I stood outside the doorway as you made your way into class.  It didn't matter that you were the youngest or the shortest you found your spot and were happy to be there.  I quietly watched as you bounced and ran about.  You didn't quite understand all of the directions and your attention span was short but I know you'll get there.  My how you are growing my sweet girl, my how you are growing.
