And So It Begins…

Normally I find myself posting portraits for my blog because they tend to be the pictures that I get the most feeling from.  This time I wanted to post something a little different because it is just a picture that had to be shared.  What you are looking at is a piece of artwork that my four year old daughter brought home from school last week.  She was very eager to show me this one because she had been able to use pastels for the first time at JK.  After congratulating her on creating a very nice design, I inquired about the phrase that I could see at the bottom left of the page.  She was kind enough to read it out to me as “I love you, Neven.”  Relatively surprised by the phrase, I chose to inquire further and asked her if she had told this to Neven at all..  She responded that she hadn’t, but assured me that she was going to make a point to tell him on her next day at school.  At our house we do tend to use the “love” word quite frequently with our night time routines as well as when the kids do those things that make your heart just melt.  That was the first time that I had ever heard her use it towards someone outside of the family, though!  I can’t help but smile when I think about my little girl at school and the realization that she is now making her own choices.  Whether it is what to do during free time, who to play with at recess, and who she even likes, or loves, in her classroom, she is choosing all on her own without any need for my direction.  Being as she is the oldest, this is definately a new chapter for us and I have to say that I am quite excited for her.  I can’t wait to see how her own experiences help her to grow into the person that she is meant to be.  🙂
