How can it be?!  My sweet girl has graduated Kindergarten and is eager to move on to First Grade!  Mommy had to choke back the tears during her graduation program..apparently she's more ready than I am.  

Kerry adored her Kindergarten teacher and is really going to miss her.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect teacher for Kerry.

One last photo in front of her first ever locker.  

Of course Kerry and Nathaniel had to say their goodbyes for the summer.  And, yes, we still hear the occasional mention of marriage from these two.  Kerry still plans to "congraduate" and get a job first. Oh boy.

Kerry had an absolutely amazing Kindergarten year, as evidenced by her stack of end-of-year awards. She received awards for Art and French, top Success Maker in math and reading, Principals list for the entire year, and a JCPS Elementary Certificate of Academic Excellence.  Her favorite is her Accelerated Reading medal.   I am so proud of her academic achievements, but I'm just as proud of the other things that Mrs. Pfister has said about my girl through the year; like that she is inquisitive and enthusiastic, hard working, helpful, demonstrates leadership, and is a thoughtful friend.  I know I'm bragging on my girl, but this is her scrapbook and  I want her to be able look back and know how special she is and that Mommy and Daddy are so proud of her.  And as much as I say that I wish she didn't have to grow so fast, I have so enjoyed watching her grow in so many ways during her Kindergarten year.  She's learned so much about how the world around her works, she's become such a sweet friend to anyone and everyone, physically she's grown close to three inches, and I am in absolute awe of her confidence and self-assuredness.  I love watching her grow, but I'm still putting in writing that, just this week, she said "Don't worry, I'll be your baby girl forever."  I'm holding her to it.  =)

Time to play catch up...I've neglected our little acre of bloggy-land for weeks!  I'll start with pictures from Mothers Day.  What a sweet day with my sweet girl =)  

And how cute this little tile she made at school!

Later in May Kerry was in a wedding.  This was her first flower girl experience and she was pretty excited about te whole thing,..especially the dress since it was "the same color as Elsa's dress".  Oh
my goodness is she ever into the Frozen movie!  

This was taken after she'd danced and twirled at the reception 'til she was ready to drop.

Well, my laptop is wrecked so if I want to post I have to do it on my iPad...not as easy.  But I wanted to get Kerry's Easter on here so     here goes.  She started off her Easter with an egg hunt at church.  Fun!  She even won the " guess how many jelly beans" game.  Her guess was 600...there were 596.  Amazing! 

My sleepy-head and her basket on Easter morning.

And in the amazing dress our friend made for her two Christmases ago.  She had to grow into it and I was so excited to see it fit her 
nicely just in time for Easter this year!  After church she got to have a fun cousins egg hunt =)

Oh my, how I have been waiting for Spring.  And it's finally here!!  I swear it seemed like the longest Winter we've had in years.  We usually have a lot of temperature fluctuations to break up the monotony but this year it just got cold...and stayed cold.  And we got more snow than normal, too, which means lots of snow days (an unprecedented amount in our state) to make up for my girls first year in school.  The good news is our state legislature passed a "snow days bill" that allowed for a few days to be shaved off. 

But now the birds are back in droves,  and the trees are budding and the daffodils are blooming so I am happy, happy, happy.

And so is this girl.  Doesn't it show?! 

She still loves her penguin, and that makes me pretty happy too.  What can I say, I'm in no big rush for her to grow up any faster than it already seems she is.

Happy Spring!
