The independent side of my five year old...

The first week of school, Julianne wanted nothing to do with the car line drop off.  A week in, she now wants to be dropped off and walk in by herself because "she is a big girl".  How did my baby get so big?  Walking into that big school all by herself and finding her classroom on her own.  I seriously want to cry every day when I drop her off and see this:
She looks so tiny walking into that big building.  She is learning so much and just loves school.  For that, I am thankful.  This whole letting your kids go thing is difficult.  Five years ago I had a little baby in my arms.  Now, I have a little girl who wants to walk into school by herself.  I feel like I'm going to blink and I'll be watching her drive away to go to college.  I'm determined to enjoy every moment in between now and then.
