180 days …

… of Kindergarten later and the 06/07 school year has come to a close. We went from this:


to a much taller, incredibly confident girl who often sounds more like she’s 26 than 6. A true and true tomboy who’s best buds are boys but will still hang with the girls. A whiz at the monkey bars and thinking up stories, she’s beginning to read and write with confidence. Novels and essays are around the corner, I have no doubt.


I am so proud of this girl. She rocks my world. Even when she brings a beach full of sand home in her pockets!

And, truth be told, I’m so relieved that my year of room parent duty is over. Even though I made so many great friends and love K’s teacher to death, it was, really, just one too many pieces of an already crowded pie. Summer is here! And while my work continues, everything feels just a bit slower.  More time for planning big parties.  Crafting.  Eating berries. And, ahem, blogging!

    Yahoo! Go, Katie! Go room mom! You did it.

    You worked and were a room mom too. Way to go!

    Onward, to first grade!

    Happy summer, Pam.

    Those two photos say it all. Gave me goose bumps. So much changes, so fast! Wishing my two favorite grown-up-girls a slow and savory summer!
