First Grader

First Day of School-September 2007

Hailey and her teacher Ms. Hesson

So Hailey had her last day of kindergarten last Friday. It is hard to believe that she will be in first grade next year and that she will be gone all day. I being the overprotective Mom that I am wish that she would stay little but I know that this is not an option so I just try to enjoy each moment that we have. She has learned so much this year and I am so proud of her!!!

I have also come a long way, I remember I was very apprehensive of my little girl riding the bus but she really wanted to so I had to let her spread her wings. I am thankful for her adventurous spirit and her eas going loving personality. I am sure that I will again have to fight back the tears as she boards the bus as a big first grader next year but for now we are going to enjoy the summer and the fun times that are to come.

I can't believe how much she has grown and matured this year. I agree I would love to keep them small. But I do love the bus!!

It was hard to let go for me, too. Now I am so glad that the boys are gone all day, so I don't have to take 4 kids with me everywhere I go. She will love being big and learning so much more.
