A Few Tears

Today was Hallie's very last day of PreK.  Our little girl is getting so big.  (Sniff, sniff)  I won't lie...there have been several tears shed this week.  Every day it was a little something.  It started Monday with Jonathan picking her up from school and dropping her off at my school to go to ballet for the last time.  The day ended with me reading Hallie's last PreK newsletter (her teacher sends out a weekly newsletter).  The waterworks began as I realized this was her last week in PreK.  On Wednesday, her little yellow mug was sent home--we had to send it at the beginning of the year for her to drink water out of during snack time.  She had decorated it...most of the little drawings were smudged off...except for the beautiful little smiley face heart on the bottom.  Then today came...the very last day.  Jonathan took her to school like normal.  I picked her up at 10:00 for her end of year swim party.  It was a wonderful day filled with good memories.  It did make us all a little sad to leave the comforts of a small, Christian school.  But we're excited about Hallie's adventures ahead!

Hallie eagerly posed for me this morning...she knew it was a special day! :o)

Last day for Daddy to take a PreK-er to school (Hallie now says that she's a Kindergartener since she's done with PreK!)

Hallie and her sweet teacher, Mrs. Beaudin.  We could not have asked for a better teacher.  She showed Hallie so much love and patience and embraced Hallie's personality!  Mrs. Beaudin is a very special teacher! 

Hallie has officially completed PreK...and she got the award for "Most Artistic"! :o)

The pool party!  Hallie *loved* the slide!

This face says, "I'm SO excited to be here...and it is SO cold!!"
It has been in the 90s all it was 77 most of the morning.  It wasn't until later in the day, when the clouds rolled away, that it got into the 90s.  Needless to say, the swim party was a little chilly!

Such a fun teacher!

Hallie and her PreK BFF, Marleigh.  These two are going to miss each other and got really sad today when it was time to say good-bye. :o(

Some of the sweet littles from Hallie's class!
Joe, Abby, Hallie, Sarah, Marleigh, Jordyn, Ellie, Mrs. Beaudin (and Abby's little sister)

We have been so blessed to have Hallie at Texas Christian Academy the past two years.  Hallie has been loved, encouraged, and taught about the love of Christ!  I know Hallie has learned so much the past two years and is completely ready for Kindergarten!

I love the picture of Hallie by the tree! She is so grown up!
Congrats Hallie on being a "grad"!
