The First Day of the Last Year


Today was our last "official" day of summer.  And as I lay in bed thinking about that, a horrible thought struck me.
 Tomorrow marks the first day of Sissy's last year of Elementary School. Yeah, I'm a sap. I know.
Just look at this precious baby girl starting her first day of kinder 5 short years ago.  She was so excited.  So happy to be starting school.  SO ready to pose for the camera and tell me she was going to "school"!
 Kinder was an awesome year - she was in a tiny class of 12 kiddos in a small private school. They were a sweet little class that got a long so well.
And she was such a big, independent girl.  All ready for what the world would bring her.  She made sweet friends that year.  And strengthened her love of reading.  

I look at these pictures now and all I can think of is how sweet, confident, and loving she was then...and still is today.  She may have her head crammed full of a lot more things.....geometry, scientific methods, states & capitals, student council, and more....but she has not lost that sweet disposition and helpful attitude.
Sis, get the most that you can out of this last year of Elementary!
Have an awesome 5th grade year!
I love you to pieces.
