2nd Grade Ends

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

The end of 2nd grade.  Oh my!

The time has gone by so fast.  It was only yesterday that I got The Call.  Then we were blessed to have a sweet 10 month old baby given to us forevermore.  The day came when she started preschool, & I cried as I left her with strangers for the very first time.  Those same strangers who helped give Erin the skills to enter school & start her life.  I remember her fear (and mine too!) starting over at her new school as a first grader.  And I remember how she just marched in on the first day of 2nd grade as if she owned the school.  Her principal, the amazing & wonderful Mr. Sawyer smiled at her & gave her his usual "Good morning Mini Me!"  The same greeting he has always given her.

And now the end has come.  Mr. Sawyer has left our school.  And Erin is no longer a 2nd grader.  She is going into 3rd grade at the end of summer vacation.  I really love the school we've chosen for Erin.  ICSAB is a great place for us. 

Not working since April has been a good thing for my health.  Even more so it's been great for Erin.  Just think of it.  Had I still been working, I wouldn't have captured these pics.

I truly believe things happen for a reason. The reason is very clear from these pictures, you were meant to be home with your little girl. I'm so happy you are doing so well and the huge smile on Erin's face speaks volumes in itself.

I love these pictures! I see so much of Tahlia in Erin, it is spooky...

I see Erin is into the Silly Bands as well :-)
