|Come on, Daddy!|
... that is until we walked into the school building yesterday morning. She was then terribly terrified. Although we had been talking about her new school for some time now, she clammed up and began to cry a little when she realized that my husband and I were leaving her. But you know what?

And because we have to wake her up earlier than usual I have her favorite song on repeat in the morning to help me wake her up. Taylor Swift is her girl she says. :)
Why is she is in school so early in August? She is attending a charter school that has a special summer session. Half days for a week and then school starts full time for the Fall semester on August 19th. Alrighty, y'all. Mom is pooped from this emotional week. Time to spike my sweet tea.
