That Happy Face


"If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it!"

For this week's Life in Loud, I picked this quote from a very well known children's song because it was so good to see a smile on my youngest's face.

Change can be tough, especially big change.

My littlest started kindergarten a few weeks ago. She's less than thrilled with being away from home every day. I know she likes school regardless of her protests to go. She sings the songs, talks about friends and has even started speaking Spanish. Like her older sisters, we chose the dual-language immersion program for her.

There have been a few bumps and a lot of tears. So on this day when I saw her smiling as we walked along the pier, I reminded myself that she will get used to it and this is only temporary.
