New School Year

It's grade seven.
Grade SEVEN.
How did THAT happen?
She was just learning to walk yesterday, wasn't she?

Lots of changes this year so far - big steps (more for her father and I, I think, than Kennedy) - she is going on the regular school bus this year and going in the locker room to change for P.E. on her own to name a couple. The phase of wanting to be cool (which automatically makes her dad and I decidedly UNCOOL) has definitely blossomed over the summer and a little bit of that 'almost teen' attitude has also emerged. Most people would say that these things were things they weren't looking forward to; however, to me, it's wonderful. It's development. It's progress. It's awareness of social cues that happen at this age. So, I will take the eye-rolling, the "Mom, don't, my friends are looking", the emotions and everything else that comes along with adolescence. Why? Because when you start here:

You tend to appreciate every single development that occurs. You take nothing for granted. Not even a breath.
