Last Day of Kindergarten!

 Lexi's first year in elementary school seems like it just flew by.  I got a little teary-eyed when I dropped her off at school for the last time (well, until August).  She has matured so much this year.  She's always been a compassionate and loving little girl.  This year I've seen her grow academically and emotionally.  She's able to express herself in new ways.  It was really fun to look over her writing from the beginning of the year and then compare that to the end.  She's reading and writing independently and it seemed that each month her spelling improved.  She loves to do math in her head (she probably got that from her mom) and she's a great problem-solver.  By the end of the years she had 3's (the highest you can get) in every area.  Yes, I'm shamelessly bragging about my little girl.

The picture on the left is the last day of Kindergarten and the picture on the right is the first day.  She looks so much older to me.  It makes me a little sad.

After school, Matt asked Lexi what she wants to be when she grows up.  She answered, "A swim instructor."  I think the fact that she is really loving swim lessons these days may have something to do with that answer.  It will be interesting to ask her that question at the end of each year and see how her answer changes.  So far this year she's wanted to be a ballerina, doctor, coat designer, and now swim instructor.

We also put together some gifts for Lexi's teachers.  They each got a beach towel, sunscreen, and a handmade card.  We hope everyone has a great Summer.
