Slice of Life: The Last of the First Days

Tuesdays are for slicing about life. Join us at Two Writing Teachers!

Somehow summer gave me permission and excuses to allow Tuesdays and SOL to slide through without posting. Maybe it was my unawareness of days of the week --such a lovely aspect of summer. Maybe it was the other projects I was working on. Maybe...

Enough! I'm back. 

Yesterday, Cecily didn't argue and complain as much as she has in years past about her first day of school pictures. Maybe the lump in my throat was as obvious to her as it was to me. Whatever the reason, she posed for a picture in the front yard, and then even waved as she drove past me on the driveway. 

I know there will be plenty of milestones to come in my baby's life. However, since she is the youngest of four, the first day of senior year feels like a big one right now! 

Happy Slicing!


  1. I saw many last first days posted on Facebook. So bittersweet. As a mother of three daughters, I know that there is so much hope wrapped up in that picture. They move on to do wonderful things and even, sometimes, give you the gift of a grandchild. (Anxiously awaiting grandson number 2.)

  2. This will be the start of a very special year for you both! Soak it up!

  3. This *is* a big one! I can't believe she's a senior in high school. She was just a bit older than Isabelle is now when we first met. Time does fly!

  4. Senior year. How bittersweet. May she have a fantastic year that you both are able to enjoy.
