into the fold

putting a kid in school is hard for me. hard because i've put my entire being into making sure she is awesome. that's the goal, happy kids who have abundant love in their hearts and want to share that love. sharing love through knowledge, talents, humility, and how they regard the earth, and how their just being a good person is important. 
my oldest, unfortunately, is learning that there are not so nice people out there that missed these basic elements to humanity. it starts early. it starts at home. 

i cannot protect her from the feelings she will have about these newfound truths. but i can teach her by example and love, how to act.
