I'm a Little Distracted
I'm a little distracted.
The kids started school today and I'm wearing two different shoes.
That's not a by-product of my being distracted, though. I was wandering around my back yard and stepped in a big pile of dog poop because my whole mind and heart were a few miles away with Ana as she starts Middle School. That's the distracted part.
I did NOT cry. Not while watching Ana walk into the school, nor after stepping in the dog poop. I kind of FELT like it both times, but I didn't.
My husband and I have a tradition of going together to take the girls to school on their first days. Jane started a new school today, too. She was a little nervous but once we got into school, she was really excited. And really ready. (Gosh, I love that little face. It's impossible to capture Jane on film though because she never stops moving so pictures of her never really look like her to me. Then again, the pictures from today aren't terribly good anyway. I was a little distracted.)
Here's Ana, walking away into her new world, along with my heart.
(She's the one with her hand up. I tried to edit the photo to point to her but I just couldn't get it done today. See what I mean? Distracted.)
