When Margaret started middle school, I pulled out a bunch of old pictures, scanned them into my computer, and then made a slide show set to the Mama Mia tune, "Slipping Through my Fingers." (Masochistic? Maybe just a little.)
Tomorrow she has high school orientation. It seems like moments ago I was talking with my kindergarten girl about what she would be for Halloween.
So onward, little Queen of Hearts. Your kingdom awaits!
