Can't believe another one of my babies will be headed off to middle school in August. Seems like yesterday we were taking Delaney to her first day at preschool.
Look at that little cutie! She started to have a meltdown when we were leaving the first day. Daddy took her aside, had a little chat and she was good to go. She loved preschool and had no desire to go to elementary school when the time came. Here is a picture her kindengarten teacher took on the first day to be placed over her cubby.
This picture cracks me up! Can you tell she's not happy? Thankfully after a week she turned around and started liking school.
If you grew up around the time I did (long time ago) you completed 5th grade and moved on to middle school. No biggie. Not anymore! Now you have a big 5th grade graduation. They asked that everyone "dress appropriately". Delaney is a total tomboy and dressing up to her means wearing jean shorts. I was totally surprised when she suggested wearing a dress. I actually thought she was messing with me.
Her friends were shocked!
After the ceremony we took her out to lunch. As you can tell by the picture, she was done with the dress. She was beyond excited to receive a cell phone as a gradutation gift. Thank goodness for unlimited texting plans!
Congrats Delaney! We are very proud of you!
