The big "First Day"

It is hard to believe that I sent my little girl off to her first day of Kindergarten on Friday. Time really has gone by quickly. I can say that I was so proud of her and I was confident that she would be fine...so I was fine. Brian took the day off so he could take her and pick her up. Since it was my first week of school, too....it would have been a bit tricky to have taken the day off. I was grateful Brian could. Ellie is very thrilled with her teacher as well as having some of her good friends in class with her. That always makes the transition easier. Ellie, I am super proud of you....love you so much....and can not believe you are a mighty kindergarten student already! So proud of you!!!!


Ellie getting all geared up for her first day. Love that the backpack is about as big as she is!

Daddy's girl......

Reid will not know what to do with himself while Ellie is away all day. It will be a transition for us all I have a feeling.

Brian treated Ellie to a special breakfast before school on her first day. Maybe this will become a tradition in our house.

There she is! Next to the school ready for her big day!!! I am sure there will be MANY pictures and updates to follow as we begin this new journey!!!!

Wow! What a special day! These kids just keep growing and growing and there's nothing we can do about it! Ella will start K on the 8th, and she is SO excited. We'll see how Abby and I do without her all day . . .

To Ellie, From Ella:

Dear Ellie,

How is KIndergarten? I'm going to be starting Kindergarten soon. So, that's all I have to say! Goodbye!

From, Ella

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
