Kindergarten Grad

Miss A is now a Kindergarten Graduate.

It's been a wonderful year for Miss A. She's loved her teacher, made wonderful friends, and learned more than we would have dreamed possible. The little girl we sent to kindergarten in August walked out on Friday afternoon as an excellent reader, a vivacious learner, and a inquisitive thinker.

Miss A had a teacher who really turned her on to learning more, to challenging herself to try new things, and to explore the world around her. She's made some wonderful new girlfriends and has adjusted so well to being in school all day. In many ways, this year has been affirmation that we made the right decision to redshirt her last year and delay kindergarten.

She was ready to take on the world and she's excelled.

Miss A's fabulous teacher made a Snapfish Memory Book for each child in the class with pictures from the entire year and all the special events. She also made a DVD of pictures that included every child in the class set to music that made us both laugh and cry. What a wonderful way to document this precious year.

Kindergarten Graduation was a special day for Miss A and our family. She's on the road to a fabulous educational journey!! As her parents, we know only too well that the days ahead will quickly pass. Before we know it, she'll be wearing a real cap and gown and graduating from High School.

Please Lord slow down the days and teach us to enjoy each moment along the way!
