Nalani

Last night was "Math Night" and Brigg's school.
Paul had a meeting in Cedar Rapids, so I piled all the kids in the car and took them myself.
We went last year, too, and I remember Lani sticking close by me the whole time.
I think she was overwhelmed by all the people and activity and she just wanted her mommy.
Not this year.
Nope.
This year all I saw most of the night was the back of her head.
She wanted to be involved in every single activity Brigg was in.
She didn't hold my hand.
She walked around with confidence.
I can honestly say that this is the first time I have looked at her and thought, "She is ready to head off to school next year."
And as I started thinking about it, I have seen it in other things, too.
She is becoming ever so confident in gymnastics.

She will try any stunt the teachers want her to do.
She loves going and having an activity that is all her own.

She's spending less and less time on my lap and more time playing with Brigg,
or "taking care" of Ayla.
She is growing up. And I'm happy about that.
I have been worried about her heading off to school a lot lately.
But I think she is getting ready. It may not be as traumatic as I once thought!
