These sisters sure love getting their pictures taken together. For every picture I take of them, there are probably at least 5-6 times I have to tell them no, we don't have time for pictures right now. At least i know their childhood will be well documented.
Today was Kara's kindergarten graduation. (even though she still has school for 4 more days next week.) She was disappointed that Daddy couldn't make it, but excited for the little girls and me to show up there. The kids recited a little poem, and we watched a slideshow of all the events throughout the year. The teacher did a good job of getting pictures of Kara in there too, even though she's only been in class for 2 weeks. She has taken pictures of her about everyday, and just randomly inserted them along with the other kids. Every time A picture of Kara came on screen, Evie would excitedly shriek, "wook! Kawa!" all the kids thought that was funny.
Almost all the kids in her class live in our neighborhood. I was surprised that several of the parents came right up to me, knew who we were, and exactly where we lived, and had heard about us from other neighbors. One lady even knew my and the kids' names.
She got a graduation certificate, and her teacher pulled me aside after to say that she hasn't had much time to assess Kara, but from what she's seen, she will be fine for first grade. I didn't say anything, but I wasn't at all worried about her readiness for first grade. She is pretty far ahead of the work I've seen coming home, so I know she'll be fine.
