My dearest girls,
Today is the start of another school year. You don’t know that of course. You have no idea. You’ve never been to school and I’m not sure if you ever will or not.
So today, when most young kids were up early getting ready for their first day, our life looked like it did any other day.
You would have been in Grade 1 and Kindy today, quite possibly filled with the nerves and tears I’ve seen described by many parents. Instead, you played. At home, where you’re always yourself and always comfortable.
You spent time outside. You looked for bugs in the garden and studied them closely.
You created art together…
…immersed in an imaginary world.
You played with your little sister. You all laughed and giggled together.
We read books together. We talked. We cuddled. We enjoyed each others company.
I used to wonder if this was the right decision, because it’s a big decision! But looking into your smiling little faces I have no doubts.
You are happy, and you are so free. Right now, I could not imagine life any other way. I don’t think I could give you a better childhood. I can’t wait to spend another magical year living and learning with you.
