And so it begins.....

Well, Gracie has completed nine weeks of Kindergarten, and she is turning into such a big girl. In the past two months she has:

  • Been to her first slumber party, where they went and wrapped houses and spray painted the neighbor's dog.
  • Got her ears pierced. She begged Kris and I to let her do this, and she is SO proud of her new earrings.
  • Participated in the Kindergarten PTO Program, and got to say the Pledge of Allegiance in front of 200+ people with her friend Jenna.
  • Learned what a fundraiser is!!!! Our school is raising money for PTO right now, and Gracie is in second place. (She's earned 120.oo so far!!!!) It ends on Friday!
  • Joined competitive cheerleading. I really wanted her to stay in tap and ballet, but she just didn't enjoy it. So, Miss Lee Ann (her coach) talked me into putting her into competitive cheerleading. Gracie LOVES it!!! She had to practice for 7 hours in one weekend, and loved every minute of it. She was sad when it was over. And, you should have seen how excited she got when we were ordering he uniform, shoes, make-up, etc. this past weekend!!!

And Kris has learned in the last nine weeks that:

  • two little boys in Gracie's class "adore" her. You wouldn't believe the amount of flowers she gets!! LOL I think it's so precious, but Kris constantly reminds Gracie that she can't have a boyfriend until she's 25!!

Hooray for a new post!

OH MY, she's so big! How did the earring thing go? I told Beth she has to be 7, so she can be the one to take care of them. Even then, I'm nervous she'll freak out about it. Is Grandpa 100 of the $120 for the fundraiser? :) When does it end? I'm sure she can hit up Uncle Kevin for some next weekend!

Looking forward to seeing y'all!

I'm so proud of the level of responsibility Gracie has reached during the first 9 weeks of school. She's worked hard and has made so many new friends.
