Today we embark on the first school year for miss burgessa. In preparation, I wrote a lot of giant checks last night and prepared a nutritious snack (sans nuts). Hopefully, my loving check signatures and sliced strawberries get her a long lasting love for education. Since we are paying more than most peoples mortgages on a few hours of school per day, we will be holding her accountable for simple multiplication, greek, and fencing skills by spring. I love how she brings home new words and ideas. My favorite is telling me she “needs space.” I have wholeheartedly started using that term more frequently than she:)
Kali, I am so proud of everything you have become and cant wait to see what is next. I love you THIIIISSS much!
