Last Days of Summer

This Friday Lexi starts kindergarten.  She is going through the same classes she went through last year, but the school is going to recognize her as a kindergardener.

She's also grown an inch or two.  Now when I take her for a walk, I don't have to walk lopsided to compensate for her height.  People see her whole face when she walks up to a counter in a store.

So much has gone by since Lexi was born.  It's too much to take in all at once.  My thinking culminates to the reports I got from Lexi's teachers and therapists from last year.  All of them say that Lexi is a pleasure to work that.  She's that way because of me.  My parents play a huge role in it too, but she's that way because I worked so hard the first two years of her life to make it better than I had it when I was a kid.

It paid off.  Her childhood is so much better than mine.  It used to make me cry, comparing the two in my mind, but now it just makes me smile.
