Brand New

Today we had a brand new experience. Chloe and I went in our brand new van to her brand new school for her brand new preschool class. It's a brand new experience for us to take her wheelchair with us so easily. We love our brand new van!....



We met her brand new teacher, Miss Meegan....



Chloe loved showing off her brand new back pack to her brand new friends and brand new therapists. She also loved the brand new experience of playing the marimba at the school's playground!....



Tomorrow is the big day when Chloe has more brand new experiences: the bus ride, her first time being in the care of someone outside our family, and her very first official day of school. Then next week I start working at a brand new job. Oh boy!

All these brand new things are making my old heart kind of sad, but mostly excited. I know Chloe is ready to experience all these brand new things, so hopefully she will help me adjust.
