Today I'm linking up with Greta at G*funk*ified for her favorite phone photo link up with a short story that all started back in 2007...
I received a phone call. The person on the other end of the phone told me that Blondie had been the last child accepted into the preschool of my choice. Five years later all three of my children had progressed through that same school. This year Ball finished preschool marking the last time I would drive any of my children there.

The tree out front welcomed everyone coming onto the grounds and was the perfect size and shape for even the smallest three year olds to climb.
Beginning with her older sister five years ago, I took a picture of each of my children on their first day of school and on their last day of school. The tiles in the wall provide a great measure to mark their growth during their preschool years. On the last day of school I easily got a picture of Ball in the tree out front, she smiled happily for a shot with both of her teachers, and then it came time for her to stand against the wall.
After some ten minutes of bartering, getting frustrated, begging, arguing, and finally explaining how happy it would make Mommy, I finally convinced my youngest to let me take her picture.
