My Little Fledgling

Yesterday was Gracie's first day of preschool (!!!) and it was probably one of the best days of our life. We are so fortunate to be attending an outdoor preschool that is led by an amazing women who is full of magic. A teenage alum once said that the program "helped her to see" and that is so true for us as well. Everything is turned into a song or story. A fir cone, a creek, a dead woodrat. It really is magical!

But first...we painted the bus lovingly named Ganesh. 
So appropriate as Ganesh is the Remover of all Obstacles. 

May the journey begin!


  1. I am so grateful that you shared this wonderful memory. You captured it perfectly! How grown up and lovely and attentive she looks!
    Love the bus. She clearly has a creative teacher. Love you all!

  2. Is this the same woman we met in the woods a few years ago? When Gracie was Emily's age? Can't wait to see more!
