today

congratulations!
today is your day.
you’re off to great places!
you’re off and away!

you have brains in your head.
you have feet in your shoes.
you can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
you’re on your own. and you know what you know.
And YOU are the girl who’ll decide where to go.

today my baby girl starts kindergarten. today is the beginning of her education. it’s hard to believe that it’s here already. the start of school. she is so big but will always be my little girl. as she waits to go in, she holds Jen’s hand with love but also with a hint of hesitation. nervous excitement. today is your day Aisha. you’re off and away and i couldn’t be more proud of you.
