Very Hard on Daddy

I think that fewer words are best right now; mainly because daddy is not sure how he feels about this "first" for his little girl:

I felt the same way when my niece rode the bus the first time - and second time - etc - and she's my niece, not my daughter! Such a trust you are placing in that bus drivers hands. We've all gone through it and it's part of growing up - but each step of independence and out of our control and the security we try to provide is such a tough step! Exciting to see them grow, but also hard at the same time to let go of even the little things.

Rebekah looks fantastic. Glowing. Happy. Healthy. Brought a smile to my face.

Beautiful! Be proud of Rebekah for her confidence and independence. How marvelous to see her taking on a very normal challenge of growing up with that beautiful smile on her face!

What a wonderful sight. Rebecca is becoming such a big girl. She is just beautiful and glowing. I know it pulls on your heart and the tears just come out of nowhere, but with each trip on the bus it gets a little easier. Thank you for sharing such delightful pictures the last few days. Both of the girls are growing and look so happy!

My oldest, Sara, just took off for college three weeks ago. I had her stand in the very same spots where she stood 12 years previously for her fist day of first grade. When comparing the two sets of pictures, I broke down crying. Where did the last 12 years go?! At the same time, I am rejoicing and proud that she is well enough to be able to go to college. Rebekah looks so happy. I hope Daddy was smiling through his tears, too.
