A Week of Firsts for SaraGrace

My 'baby' started kindergarten this week. Wah... Thankfully it's only half days because I would be missing my little sunbeam horribly if she was gone all day.

Traditional photo with Mama

All ready to go, but a little bit scared

This photo is blurry, but I love how Molly has her arm around SaraGrace, guiding her to the bus

Surrounded by Molly and Chloe, SaraGrace is escorted to a new adventure

At noon, Mama waits anxiously for SaraGrace to come home. Here comes the bus!

And here she comes!

"I had a great day, Mama!"

And then today....

My tooth is really wiggly!

And whomp! There it is!

"I'm so excited about losing a tooth, but Mommy looks all sad and is mumbling something about me losing my babyhood."

And since this post is about SaraGrace, here is another of her 'friends.' Someone came running in the house yelling, "I found a HUGE stick bug!" We all rushed outside and sure enough, it was the biggest one we had ever seen. As we all peered cautiously at it, SaraGrace ran up and grabbed if off the garage wall as if it were a piece of chocolate.

OK--the thing was HUGE. And cool--in a disgusting sort of way!

SaraGrace played with it for HOURS. The poor thing finally died just to give itself a break.

I couldn't do it. I couldn't send them off for the day. I would be in a heap in the fetal position.....

She is absolutely adorable. What a contagious smile. Love the tooth too...

But my favorite photo is the one of you and SaraGrace...beautiful!

SO SWEET! What a happy girl! That smile simply couldn't get any bigger or brighter. And such a big day!

GREAT pic of the two of you! And if it was taken post-haircut, I think it looks super!!

It is a bit sad to see our "babies" grow up, isn't it? I had a couple tears for you and SaraGrace. What a sweetie, and such a bug-girl! She just may grow up to be a bug-ologist (I know there's a more scientific term...).

Ohilda said...

Love it!!! Don't they grow so darn fast. :(

God bless your babies....your family is so beautiful.

So glad she had a wonderful 1st day of school! Love her name! SaraGrace! We have a Sarah Grace, too!

The little ones across the top of your blog are adorable! I look forward to hearing more about your precious family! God is so good!!

She is such a beautiful little princess! Loved her outfit and loved her sweet smile. The bus drivers face in the background was cracking me up though. You'd think she'd be used to Kindergarten mommies. ;0) LOL Amy
