letter to trinity: 51 months

Dear Trinity,

This has been quite a month around here. The biggest change in your life since we moved and certainly the biggest event to happen to you that you can remember. You started going to school.

And so far, you pretty much love it. The first day your Mom and I took you to school you got out of the car, said hi to your teacher and to the kids there that you did know, and you never once looked back. It was a great deal sadder for us than it was for you. More for your Mom than for me as she is now at home half of the time with just our dog to keep her company. So its a big change for her too.

You have had a few days that you didn't want to go as much as others, and one day you decided that you needed to go home once you got to school. And of course, we accommodated that. Bottom line is that you don't have to go at all this year, but not having other kids around all that often isn't helping, and you are already older than you need to be because you hang around adults so much of the time. Well, when referencing me, I use the term adult loosely, but you know what I mean.

A couple of the other things that have been going on lately: your grandpa came back for a visit and spent the entire time playing with you. You love having him around and I love that he wants to spend time with you.

You have been going back and forth on what to wear for Halloween. One day its a princess, the next its a superhero. We bought you two costumes and let you pick the one you were going to keep. So, for now, you're Batgirl. We'll see how it goes.

We went to an event yesterday to show off a local school, and some of the community events involved in our area. You and your mom and I went to a yoga class and a smoothie demonstration. The yoga was great, because its something you and I already do at home, and you are great at it.

Looking forward to another month of surprises and fun with you.

Love you,
