Butterflies in the stomach, love in the heart, & a smile on the face

Creative Every Day/Flickr Project 365 photo for 8/31/2010:
 I am loving these photos.  I took them at the bus stop this morning - Emma's first day of middle school - and I kept looking back at them throughout the day.  I love all the photos I took, ones with the bus, the dog, and Annie.  There is just some quality in these two that kept drawing me back.  I think I see a glimpse of Emma growing up here, like I can almost see it as it is happening right here in this moment that I caught on film (do we call digital photos film?).  And, this glimpse didn't fill me with pain and loss and fear and gunky-gunk that change usually brings on, instead I am filled with a calm, excited, happiness.  Looking at Emma as she is caught in this moment brings a sense of relaxed, contented, it-will-all-be-alrightness (I do love making up names for things).
