Bloom and Grow. . . and meet the teacher

It's official.  She's really and truly five years old and going to Kindergarten on Monday.  I have been working one of her birthday photos for a scrapbook layout.  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Notice how tiny and delicate she was in her newborn photo.  Crazy stuff!!!  Man, was she really ever that small?  And when did she turn into the little lady that she is now?  When did it happen?  I've been home with her all her life.  I just don't get it.  It happens soooo fast.  They aren't kidding when they say time goes by so quickly.  I'm still in awe with the fact that she's really going to Kindergarten.  For REAL


We did get to meet Hannah's teacher today -  Mrs Degon.  I snapped a photo.  Look at the fake smile from my little girl.  Totally a forced smile.  I hate photos like that.  And of course, we're "already sucking up" as Stephen says since we gave Mrs. Degon a small gift of pretty pink post it notes, notepad, pushpins, and paperclips.  But it was something I needed Hannah to do, having been a teacher myself. 


And no worries about numbers in Hannah's class.  There are a total of 13 or 14 kids, 7-8 boys and 5-6 girls.  Totally awesome, if you want my opinion.  Here's to Monday.  Say lots of prayers.  We'll both need them.

Rose you are going to LOVE it!!! Honestly just love it and so will she. I enjoy Ethan even more now. And I cherish the time I have with him even more. I love how excited he is in the morning to go and I love how happy he is to see me at the end of the school day. I can't wait to hear how it all goes.
