The End of Pre-K

Today was Lexie's last day of school!  Her year in Pre-K flew by!

She has grown so much in the past 9 months.  On her first day of school, she walked into the school, nervous, scared,  and uncertain.  I remember how her tiny hand clutched mine tightly, and how she kept catching my eye and shooting little smiles my way.

It wasn't long before she was racing into her teacher's arms every morning, and not even looking back at me.

After I dropped Lexie off at her classroom this morning, I turned and tried to blink the tears away.  I was shocked by how quickly the year went, and by how much older she acts and looks.

At the end of class, we presented her teachers with their end of the year class gifts. Her teacher hugged me as she sent Lexie on her way, and told me that she'd be waiting for Lily.  I sure hope so!  Dylan and Lexie both had the same teachers, and they are wonderful.  My kids adore them, and I hope that Lily is lucky enough to have them as her teachers in 3 years!

Lexie left her classroom for the last time, and I swallowed back tears, knowing that we would no longer be doing this.  She walked down the hall, smiling and holding her memory book (an awesome gift from the teachers) and graduation cap snack.

She walked down the hallway for the last time as a student, and left the building as a Pre-K graduate.

Lexie adored her teachers, and was already missing school as we pulled out of the parking lot.  I think she would have been content to have the same teacher teach her through all her school years! I can't even wrap my mind around the fact that she'll be heading to Kindergarten!

I am so proud of my baby girl.  She has come so far and grown so much!  I love my little Princess with all my heart!  She may be a big girl now, but she'll always be my baby.

    She is def more grown up in her appearance. Hard to believe she is going to KDG. I feel like she was just a chubby baby yesterday
