Back to School......

It just seems like yesterday that Lexi was starting Pre-K with a Powerpuff Girls backpack that was about as big as she was.
Today, she is a 5th grader and is as EXCITED as she can be, to be going back to school and see all her friends again.
Hope you are having a great Wednesday!

Hi Darlene, Lexi is in the fifth grade??? She is so active in everything I thought she was already in middle school, and now she ia a year from middle school. They grow up so fast. Our granddaughter will be 15 in Oct. This is her first year in High school. Wonderful years for these girls. Like Lexi, our G-dtr. is involved in everything. Not dance but sports. She is totally a girly girl, just like Lexi even so. Blond and thin as well as tall. Lexi reminds me of Ashley so much. Both girls are adorable.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs...Jeanne

My "kids" are in their 30s and I remember their school days like they were yesterday. I hope Lexi had a great first day of school! Our district started Tues....in pouring rain.
My little G.Girl will be starting pre-school soon. Her PINK backback is gigantic. I seriously wonder how she will stay upright while wearing it! :)
Hope you're having a wonderful week! L, Dana

Oh My Goodness...I'm so glad you included this precious pic of Lexi from Pre-K. It is darling! And you're right, she looks happy as a lark in the one just below. What a treasure she is for your family.
I hope you got my email thanking you for the order. You silly girl!

Your daughters are beautiful!

I was always excited for school to start... even though I talked about how much I dreaded it! :)

Ginger said...

I was just having this conversation with my daughter about how fast time is going.
Lexi is so cute. I hope she has a great year in school.

Life with Kaishon said...

Look how tall and thin she is : ) WOW! Is she tall for her age? Tell her to own it if she is : ) My best friend was always tall and she hated it! As soon as we were in high school though, she was a rock star because of her height! She is a beauty your little Lexi. Growing like crazy. Do you believe we don't start until September 8?

Figure out where the surgical procedures will take place in advance. You could do research regarding this place. Make certain your surgeon has chosen a qualified, and licensed spot. Make sure that their business office has been examined, and certified. In case your surgical procedures is going to be done on the surgeon's practice. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Unus43224ed[/url]
