On our way to first grade....

First Day of Kindergarten

Last Day of Kindergarten

Gracie graduated from Kindergarten last week--woo--hoo!!!! She had a GREAT year with an AWESOME teacher. We are so proud of Gracie and all of her accomplishments this year. She was happy that she gets a break, but very sad that Mrs. Cox won't be her teacher next year.

I can't wait for her to be in first grade!! We're going to have so much fun together, and NO I am not going to be her teacher next year!!! I have had several people ask me that. Seriously???

We're going to continue learning/working on things this summer. Gracie LOVES math--not sure where she got that from. She is learning to add/subtract double digit numbers right now, and she LOVES it. Really?? You wouldn't believe how much each day she spends doing math related work. And she even thinks it's so fun to write all her numbers to 100. Now she is working on writing to 200. DORK!! Just kidding---- I was not that motivated in math, at ALL. We're continuing to work on reading and writing. Reading is going very well--she is more than ready for first grade. Writing---we're getting there. She has great ideas and is beginning to express them a LOT better. I've just got to keep her motivated. Handwriting---she has her daddy's, HA!!!! It's not bad---it's just not as "pretty" as I would like it.

Mom and I spent the afternoon yesterday planning little field trips for the girls this summer. We're so excited!!! We pretty much have something planned for each week. Mom and I are also working on planning a girls trip for ourselves at the end of June--fun, fun.

I can see such a change in her face. How exciting that she loves math. She must get it from her Aunt Laura.
