I Gradutaed From Pre-K!

I did it. I survived my first year away from mommy and daddy. I survived my first year of school. I SURVIVED pre-k 3 day at Redlands Christian. I'm not the same kid, oh yes still joyful and happy go lucky. But I am more confident, more outgoing, more sure I can do anything I really set my mind to. I grew an inch and gained 2 pounds. I'm faster, smarter and I can write "mom." I'm almost 5 and so excited about next year. My teacher is my mom next year and daddy keeps saying I have met my match. I'm not sure what he means but I can't wait to find out. Something tells me my mom will be blogging LOTS about me next school year. ;)I made lots of friends, and probably scared a few off too.
I gave Mrs. Kidd a few gray hairs and drove her so crazy she started making monkey faces. I also fell in love with Mrs. Kidd and with a few flashes of my blue eyes and long lashes wrapped her around my finger.

I learned to stand in line quietly which by the way is WAY over rated. Oh and got sand in places that took mama days to get out.

At the beginning of the year I couldn't even reach these bars, look at me now!!!!!

Here I am saying good bye to Mrs. Kidd and Mrs. Causey and yes they are crying but I swear they are not tears of joy because they survived me it's cause they are sad I am leaving........I promise. ;) Let's recap the year shall we?
Fourteen scraped knees
2-bloody noses
1-black eye
2-red card changes
12-stained shirts
2-ripped pair of pants
15-yellow card changes
2-notes home
72-glares from teachers
25-snacks shared with me by Mrs. Causey (cause she brings yummy food)
1,000 hugs to teachers
42-apologies for not obeying
endless finger painting, glue sticks, chapel services, play dates, pizza lunches, sticky hugs, writing letters and numbers, getting the "wiggle" out during carpet time. monkey bar crossing, sharing snacks, mommy helpers, holiday fun and swinging on the swings. Pre-K? Priceless!!!
