... a birthmark baby who is headed to school this year?  Pre-k?  Kindergarten? Grades 1-3? Grades 4-7?  Grade 8 or higher? 

What do you do to get ready for school?  Do you do any extra planning due to her/his birthmark?

I'm actually fine with her driving.  I'm a fairly laid back type of person and I'm really enjoying watching her grow up.  We're now looking at colleges and although she always used to say she wants to be a doctor, she's now leaning towards getting a degree in physical therapy.  Similar, yet different (though, by only two years of schooling).  I think she's both excited and a bit nervous that this is her last year of high school.  She let me take a (last) first day of school picture...
