Today was Rubys first day of preschool!! Wow. So many emotions today. I can't believe this little one is going to preschool. She is such a little doll, I think she will have a wonderful time. 
It's bittersweet at the same time. I remember how desperately I wanted Lila to go. How every year I would avoid social media at all costs because of the back to school pictures and how I would cry thinking that Lila would never have this opportunity. Now Ruby is going to a "normal" school. She has no special IEPs , she isn't medically fragile. It's so odd and so wonderful to be on this side. I am glad she gets to go. So happy she can do this for her sister. I had her wear Lilas special ruffle romper so that we could take a piece of her with us. I hope she was right there next to us playing and singing. 

I got to be with her the first day. I hope she likes it just as much when I am not there on Friday.

She looks so big and so little all at once. What a wonderful day for her and you and for Lila. I'm sure Lila is there with her, experiencing these milestone moments in her own way.
