wanted, but Coco kicked us out.
She was just sitting there, playing with her play-doh, looking all cute and she looked up and said "Goodbye, mommy. Goodbye, daddy. I see you later." Tony asked if we could stay, and her reply was "NO! Dis is Coco's school. I see you later." So off we went.
....we didn't get to have a big "Back to School Eve" celebration, like we were hoping, as my Auntie Linda passed away and her service was the night before school started. Then Tony's dad passed away (both of pancreatic cancer) and plans shifted again. We finally got to have a miniaturized version of a Back to School Eve, but Coco wasn't into it. At least she wore her crown for *one* picture!
I originally had a different quote in mind for the chalkboard, but thought it was more fitting to put what Tony's dad used to yell out the window to Tony and his brother's and sister's every morning when he dropped them off at school:
These two deaths have rocked our family. It's such a sad reminder of how short our time here really is. Tony and I are trying to enjoy every moment we have with this little family of ours, and remember to enjoy the "little things" because as it turns out, these little things are actually the most important of all.
Have a great Friday, friends!
