First and last

Here is Grace on the first day of kindergarten this school year - just about 9 months ago.
And here she is today, with only 3 days of kindergarten left to go.

I don't know...can you see much of a difference?  She really has grown so much this school year in height, but she is also more mature.  Grace has a incredible vocabulary for a 6-year old, a natural curiosity about the world, her reading has taken off, and she will declare over and over that math is her favorite subject in school.  Our babysitter, who is a first grade teacher, told us last night that she is ready for first grade.  Grace may be....but I am not sure I am!

Lately, my sweet little girl is into "big kid"things like Monster High, the Voice, cheerleading, the movie High School Musical...all of which are accessible since she has figured out how to use the THREE remote controls to turn the TV on and choose the channel and program she wants.
Here she is playing around in the backyard this evening.

Grace had an entire singing, dance, and acrobatic routine for me to watch and she kept asking if I was videotaping it.  Which I wasn't....but I was photographing every move!

Good job shwing the whole show. Ba thinks that "these are good pictures of Grace dancing in the grass"

I really like all the singing and dancing in your photos. She always seems so full of life! Sweet pictures! Remember when we were just talking about them getting closer to going to kindergarden? Yikes...time flies!

Grace, you make me laugh! Tell Mommy that I can almost hear you singing and laughing with her photographs. Don't tell anyone, but when I was your age I used to love to sing and dance all by myself, too.
