The Graduate

Today was Lexi's preschool graduation day. Would you believe that I vividly remember my own preschool graduation? And I believe memories were made for Lexi tonight as she has reached yet another milestone. She is so excited about Kindergarten, she can hardly contain herself. This has been a wonderful school year for her. She has blossomed so much socially, and I can hardly believe the things she's been doing lately academically. I have to admit that I actually practiced with her how to walk up on the stage to get her diploma. I demonstrated hands to the side, shoulders back, big smile and OWN IT GIRL! I told her, "When you get up there, OWN THAT STAGE honey! Enjoy your moment in the spotlight." She said, "Like this Momma?" And she put her hands on her hips and looked like a supermodel on the catwalk! "Well, not quite like that, but okay!" I said.
It's hard to believe in two and a half months, my baby is starting kindergarten! I can't believe I'm going to be a PTA mom!!! I am so excited for her (and I'm kind of excited about being a PTA mom too!). Some of my favorite childhood memories involved my elementary school...great teachers (who made me want to become a teacher), friends that I still keep in touch with, fun field trips, music and art class projects. I just can't wait to see what God has in store for her and for us as a family as we enter the school age years.
Lexi & her teacher, Ms. Courtney. She was a GREAT teacher, so nurturing and structured. She was the perfect fit for Lex!


Uh, huh that's right...work it...own it!

Aaaaaawwwwww.....that is so sweet. I can't believe she will be in Kindergarten...seems like it should be another year. It reminds me that it is the next stage the family moves into together and that is really cool.

I used to call kindergarten....Kidney garden....you think I was going to be a nurse??? ha ha!
