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.

Awww, she has grown up on you! I was thinking the same thing looking at Zach as he starts 2nd grade this year. And those class numbers are awesome! The kids here have 20-25 in their classes. Just one of the many reasons I'm glad we're headed for a better school district soon.
