And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Another First...

Sarah rode the bus to her first day of school on Tuesday morning. Rebekah's bus picked up Sarah, too. So both girls had to be up, fed, dressed, hair combed and ready when the bus arrived. This was just before heading out the door.


Sarah had to be fitted into the "new" seat. I'm not sure what she thought of the seat, but she was definitely excited to be on the bus and have her own seat and not have to get back off once Rebekah was fastened in and ready to go.


Here, the bus is heading down the driveway with both of our precious girls. Mommy and Daddy are both standing at the walk to the house watching both our girls head to school. The dawn of a new era...


When Rebekah got off the bus at school, she had to give her sister a kiss. Everyone commented how "loving" Rebekah was towards Sarah.

After dropping everyone else off, the driver took Sarah to her class. Sarah's class lasted an hour and a half and then she came home on the bus, too. She was sooooooo excited to get to ride the bus. She was excited, too, that she got to go to school. When she got home from school, she had to show me what she had done at school. She had made a scarecrow to hang on a door, so she had to put it on her bedroom door.

Tuesdays, Rebekah has just a half day (without the rest of the Kindergarteners) so she came home in time for lunch. She was just as excited that Sarah got to ride the bus as Sarah was. She wouldn't stop talking about Sarah riding the bus and going to school.

So many emotions, so many thoughts, so many first yet to come...

How bittersweet this must be for you guys, seeing your babys go off to school together.

What a wonderful stage of life to be in!!! My babies are now 19 and 16, and there are so many days I wish I could turn back the hands of time. . .
