I am a wreck...
Her 1st selfie without braces- she immediately texted this picture to everyone!
I've been extra emotional these last few weeks watching my daughter take a giant leap in maturity. It's this weird feeling of being insanely proud mixed with panic mixed with sadness mixed with a little pit of pain because my heart feels like it's going to burst. She ended 6th grade on the honor roll- just one B that Eric and I were not happy about it- but she did it! Just as she has every year since she was three years old. But besides that she has become this gorgeous dynamic person. Isabelle is traveling Europe, meeting people from all different countries, eating foreign food, seeing God's love in so many corners of the world! I shouldn't be so surprised that she's maturing, but my heart hurts because of it. Am I selfish?
Now that her braces are off there just isn't anything about her that is a little girl anymore. She is growing up, and our hearts are breaking. I know she's supposed to, I just don't want her to. Isn't she beautiful though?
