It was very sunny, lol. This was Friday night
Best guys around! Eric, Jeff, and Ronny
This was the fancy night!
The view from our room!
My mom stayed with the kids (thanks Mom!) so we picked them up around noon on Sunday, took them home, put them down for a nap, and relaxed a bit.
This week is a big one! Delaney starts preschool! We have been promising her a "special" day to go out and get her school stuff and today was that day!
It started off in Nana's car (which is always exciting) with me in the back seat with her! My grandma, Mimi, came with us too!
We went to good old Target to look for a back pack and unfortunately there was slim pickings. I realize we are a little late getting a backpack, but this is when we had time:( We quickly found a cute backpack and lunchbox that matches. I could not get over what we were doing. There she is, just picking out a backpack- not to load with crap and cart around the house, but to take to school! Unbelievable.
Nana showing her the one cute one left. Seriously, check out the bare bones behind them.
Love her. (Both of them actually)
She looks so big!
After we found her backpack, it was off to get some shoes and an outfit. She picked out some super cute pink and gray tennis shoes and then led the way to the clothes. She was so cute! We don't usually get to go shopping without Brody so this was special. She definitely has opinions now! My mom and I would hold up a shirt and she'd say, "Ummm, no thanks". Mimi picked out a super cute dress for her and Nana found some adorable outfits too!

Almost too big for this section....
We hurried back to my mom's for dinner (Eric and Brody were meeting us there) and Delaney really wanted to show P-Paw her new loot.
Showing P-Paw her new stuff.
I can't believe how big she is. I never understood why kids going to school was always such an emotional thing, but man, I get it. I get it big time. I don't really want her to go.
I am going to miss her so much.
But, that's okay, it's not about me, it's about her. It's about her growing up, becoming more independent, learning how to make friends (okay, she already does that), sitting at a table with kids her age, listening to someone other than Eric or me, and just about her becoming Delaney Grace Mikkelson and blossoming into what God wants her to be.
So I just have to let go.
She will nail it.
