Charlee graduated from Preschool! It is official...she is going to Kindergarten! HOORAY! I just wish Kindergarten was all day! Oh well....I am so proud of her. She has learned so much these past two years. Preschool has been so good to her! She has learned her letters, numbers, colors, manners, shapes, writing skills, coloring skills....everything she needs to know to go to Kindergarten! Charlee is with her two best little girlfriends from school - Brooklyn and Kirsten. They are such cute little friends. I just wish they were all going to the same school so the could continue their education together!
This is a picture of Charlee, Mrs. Summer and Kirsten. Charlee loved Mrs. Summer - she had a baby girl that was Griffin's age and she would come to preschool and join the kids for the day. I think there were some days that Charlee wanted to trade Griffin for Stella so she could have a little sister! Mrs. Summer was so cute with Charlee and really helped her a lot this year!
This is Kirsten, Mrs. Bowen and Charlee. I have to say that Mrs. Bowen is the BEST preschool teacher ever! Cooper and Charlee both went to her school and I hope she is still teaching when Griffin is ready! She is wonderful, I know she loves Charlee and helps her to be the best girl she can be. She is so patient yet firm and has taught my children so much...not only academically but social skills, manners, and values! Her teaching is so positive that you can see each child has amazing self esteem due to the praise and attention she gives each one! Thanks Mrs. Bowen for being such a wonderful teacher! We love you and we are going to miss you!
This is Charlee and Rusty! They are going to get married in the temple when they turn 25! They have it all planned out! Rusty is such a cute little boy, we are going to miss him too. They are moving to Wyoming, so I guess these two are going to have to search each other out later on in life! They are great little friends!
Charlee singing "I'm Proud To Be An American." When these kids sang this song it was all I could do to hold back the tears. They sing it with such energy and pride I can't help but be proud to be an American too! I am grateful that Mrs. Bowen encourages patriotism and taught Charlee the Pledge of Allegiance. She even thanked Charlee's Daddy for his service to this country and teared up a bit when she explained to everyone that Charlee's Daddy was in Iraq and he couldn't be here to see her graduate. She wanted Mike to know how much she appreciates what he is doing! I promised her that I was taking lots of pictures for him so he could see his little girl graduate!
Charlee, we are so proud of you and your accomplishments this school year! You earned the "BEST BEHAVIOR BEE" two times this year! And for you, that says a lot! You are an active little girl who loves to be the center of attention. You are so full of energy that you draw everyone towards you and can always make them laugh and giggle. So, when you earned the "Best Behavior Bee" that means you really tried very hard to mind your manners and be polite. You are such a wonderful little girl. We love you so much and are so grateful that you are apart of our family! We wouldn't be the same without you....Our Little Charlee Boo, We Love You!
