Our graduate!

As hard as it is to believe, Kylie wrapped up her last day of Kindergarten yesterday. She had such a great year, learned so much and made so many great friends and memories! We're so proud of our little graduate- bring on 1st Grade!

Last week!

Today kicks off Kylie's last week of Kindergarten! As much as she has grown and learned over the past 9 months, some things are too good to change- like her signature picture pose & her pink tennis shoes :)!

1st day of Kindergarten!

Yay for May...

that brings warm, sunny days to play at the park!

A store full of daisies

It wasn't any old meeting last Friday for Daisy Troop 526- they were treated to a Build A Bear party at the mall due to how well they did in cookie sales this year! Each Daisy got to play games, build their very own animal and received not only a participation patch for their own vest but a patch for their animal's vest too! So cute! Needless to say, Kylie and her new puppy "Cinnamon" had a great time! Peyton also attended and left with a new friend "Bunny"- thanks Grandma!

Brooks Family Fun Night!

Hard to believe, but this month wraps up the school year for Kylie. That means lots of end of year events and activities! Last Thursday was Brooks Family Fun Night at the school. It was a night of cake walks, craft centers, face paintings, pizza, dancing, and raffles! It was a nice social event to see other families and friends and it gave Grandma and Papa the chance to attend an event at Kylie's school too! Although we weren't the big winners of one of the prizes in the basket raffle, the one I created with the donations for Kylie's class was well received and was filled with fantastic treats for whoever the lucky winner was!

It certainly was a family fun night for all!

A Feature in the Fine Arts Festival

Kylie was 1 of only 7 artists featured from the 5 kindergarten classes in her school in the Indian Prairie School District's Fine Art Festival yesterday! Her featured project was a set of mittens she created and decorated back in December. Ms. Gregus her art teacher had kept the project aside at school for months to display at this event!

Congratulations Kylie we're so proud of you- what a special honor!
