Her Spring pictures made me cry

Today I finally got around to cutting and sending out Aubrey's spring pictures from school. I got all teary. Thinking about much she's grown since starting kindergarten.





I'm cutting her spring pictures. She had her first pictures in the fall. Now it's spring. She's almost out of school and then will be starting first grade and it will be full day. Full day. Full day school makes me jump with excitement. No more making Austin wait until we get Aubrey to take his nap. No more early lunches or rushed lunches.

But it means she's going to be at school longer. 8:30-2:30.

Away from me.

She'll be at school more than she will be at home with me during the week. More time with a teacher and friends than safe at home with her sister and brother.

I know that she's going to love being at school. Heck, the first week of kindergarten she asked if she could stay longer. She's looking forward to having lunch at school and TWO recesses. Being a BIG first grader going to assemblies. Can you tell they've been talking about it at school and she comes running out of the gate so excited tell me. It's one of those things that makes me so happy she's so excited and so comfortable at school. But my heart just hurts knowing she's growing so fast. Heck, school is out in less than a month! I won't have a kindergartener anymore!! Ugh!

School is out in less than a month. What??

I have some ideas pinned of things I want to do and make with the kids.
like this poster

and make a banner like this for the last day of school.
*for some reason I can't get it to show the picture. I'm blaming it on me not feeling well. 


I had to end on a happy note.

Only 30 days until summer vacation!
