The Girls of Summer..



Ella graduated from Kindergarten today..

I remember kindergarten graduation caps made from construction paper and string..

Her Daddy brought her roses...{guess she is too young for a car..}

All the pretty girls in their best dresses..Ella explained to me that they didn't have to wear their uniforms under their graduation gowns..

Boys in black..

Girls in white...

All adorable ..

Emily is going into the 5ht grade..and, a member in great standing on the Honor Roll..

She loves camping and soccer, and ice skating and all her friends..


..and totally smitten with her Sophie..

I'm so excited to have Emily coming to visit for a week in July! I've got lots of plans and am counting the days until she's here.."Let the bonding begin!"

..and of course, our beautiful Alyssa...

2nd year of college in the fall..living off campus in a house with several other girls..finding her way..making her mark..and already smarter, stronger and more confidant than I am now...



I love ALL my girls and I am forever proud, grateful and blessed to have them in my life..

Good women - may we know them, be them, raise them ..

You are so blessed to have such charming and beautiful granddaughters. I can remember the excitement when my two daughters
graduated kindergarten (their caps were the construction paper variety LOL).

Hugs,

Sue

You're blessed all right! The other day, I got the biggest kick out of watching some of Ella's other videos posted on ... .... What a riot she can be, which means that she must take after you!
