emotional day yesterday saying our goodbyes to Kendall Academy where Mia has attended pre-school since she was 21 months old. The staff is like family and I attribute many of Mia's success's to them! At 5 years old and ready to start Kindergarten , Mike and I are blown away and are very proud of what she has achieved in her pre-school years. Mia is a strong reader, enjoys math and most of all is a confident well mannered girl that is always concerned for others and is very lovable. She really enjoys arts and crafts and as the director mentioned as she crossed the stage last week to get her diploma, "Mia can make art out of anything, whether it be scrap paper or a piece of mulch!". Many days it would take me a good 15-20 minutes to get out of the school because she wants to hug and kiss everyone before leaving. When we did our final good bye's yesterday with all her personal belongings in tow, she was the one that said, "It's OK, I will be back to visit!"

Can't wait to get my hands on this month's issue of our local Parenting magazine! Mia is on the Summer Fun Section!!! I just love this photo!! I submitted it to the magazine when I took it because it looked so "summery". The editor LOVED it and asked me to sign a release!@

Mia decided that she wanted to wear her hair curly, so I set it in hot curlers and it came out REALLY curly! Maybe we left them in a little to long! ((ooops)))
In the end she loved it and said she had hair like me!

Graduation Day 2011

today Mia graduates from pre-school and has her ceremony tonight at 7:30pm. We have some grandparents that are on their way up to join the celebration. I am just blown away that it has flown by so quick!! Where has the time gone???
We have been so very blessed to have found a pre-school that has prepared Mia so well to embark into Kindergarten!! Mia's pre-k teacher is Miss J and she adores her, she is always writing her love notes to bring to school. Next week will be her final week and it will be sad to say our goodbye's, but VERY exciting for a summer full of fun!! Mia has been attending that school since she was 21 months old and has formed many many special friendships!!!
