Hannah Joy...

First she did this...
Hannah turns five on a warm summer day,
The day her long awaited sunflower burst open to face the sun,
Full of joy,
Like our Hannah Joy...

Then she did this...
After much anticipation
And waiting for the mail to bring her books;
After gathering her supplies and tucking them neatly in their box;
After a few years of watching The Brothers
Read and Write and Compute....
Its HER turn.
At 6:30 this morning, her little sleepy body was perched on the couch
Greeting me as I stumbled for the shower.
"Can we start school now, Momma?"
I held her off until chores were complete
And breakfast was fed
And Baby was napping.

Then we dove in....
With delight!
