First Day of Kindergarten

It's official, my baby is all grown up. Nope, no more baby. Just a big girl going to Kindergarten. I'm sad.

She is beautiful inside and out.

So excited about the backpack! The thing almost tipped her over but she was determined to wear it. So cute!

Sassy pants with the equally sassy Chief.

Family photo...shoot, out of focus but still a keeper.

Wearing her "Tea" dress. One of our favorites for dresses. I love the quality and look of these dresses.

Starting the day out on the swings.

With her Kindergarten teacher Ms. Le Ellyn. We are at the same Montessori school as last year but they have a new location so there are many "firsts". Alexa was really excited to get back to school and her routine. She is a really social girl so I am sure she was bored of me and The Chief and ready to get back to it! We are all looking forward to a great year!

Oh my. Our day is coming in two short weeks. I can hardly stand it. HOW are these girls going to kindergarten???? HOW???

Alexa looks darling and so darned excited...it's hard to be too sad! She will have a lot of success and a great year I am sure!

Lia will also stay at her Montessori school (and oddly they have a new location this year too...but kindergarten will be at the old location for this year)...with the same Montessori teacher...so it's not as big an adjustment as it might be. I have a feeling next year is REALLY going to be our tough year!! (or should I say MY tough year??? Lia is totally down with it all...and can hardly wait to get going!! :-))

Best of luck to you and Alexa! Enjoy THESE days...for they are fleeting too...

Hi! Stumbled upon your blog. We adopted our Hubei Honey in 2008. She is from DaYe. She is the greatest gift and we feel so lucky and blessed to have her.

Alexa is beautiful! I know these years have flown by and you are asking yourself....how can she be old enough to go to kindergarten.

I love these photos, every single one. She is just gorgeous & more grown up than I can believe. Precious.
