First 2 Last....

I just love the sketch from SketchyThrusdays this last week... and although I did try to do circles... I couldn't make it work with what I wanted to do... so I did squares instead. I have wanted to do a layout with some of the precious Kindergarten moments Rainee had this last year... and this sketch worked perfectly. From the Kindergarten tea to one of the last days she shared with her class.

I love her cute little face showing off her blue hands... and that sweet Eskimo paper bag hat... smiling proudly at her Christmas program... taste testing food, field trips, Valentine day love-bug cupcakes, hunting for a leprechaun, making hats, excitement for the 100th day of school, Cinco de Mayo, Easter Bonnet Parade, painting, doing crafts, picnics, butterflies, sharing Curious George, being a Super Star... and your teddy-bear parade with Maxi-puppy. It's incredible what happens in a year. It's amazing the memories it can hold. I love having these photos all together... I love seeing the changes in Rainee... not only in her height, but I love looking at the sweet face and the changes a year can make... by the end of the year she looks so much more mature.... not really a Kindergartner any more...I know I've said it before... but I feel so fortunate to have this time with her. There are still times when I can't believe I'm home with her... I love being able to share in these beginnings of her life... I don't want to miss out on one single thing. I am blessed!
