Proud of my Aubrey

We received Aubrey's Kindergarten pictures last week and I have to say for a Kindergarten picture taken at the school, it turned out pretty darn cute. She is a beautiful subject of course so I guess its not too hard to take a great picture of her:) Don't worry grandparents, I'll bring your copies when we come down in a couple of weeks.

I went to my first ever Parent Teacher Conference a few days ago. Her teacher, Mrs. McCormack just raved about her. To quote her, "Aubrey is just a dream to have in class." She told me how polite and kind she is to others. She also said what an amazing reader she is and how fast she learns. She said how Aubrey reads so fast that she has to slow her down sometimes so that she can make sure she is understanding what she is reading:) I felt so proud of her when I left that conference thinking I do have an amazing daughter( well, 3 actually:)

Then I just received through email the Glen Oaks Elementary newsletter. It named Aubrey as an Artist of the Week for the first week of October(I never knew this and I wonder if Aubrey did). There were only 3 kids picked out of the entire kindergarten(over 100 kids!) for the whole month of October for this recognition. So, again I was proud! She is an amazing and creative little artist. That is a talent that I noticed of hers at a very young age.

Sorry I'm bragging today but I have to! I'm proud of our little Aubrey! I think mom's have a bragging license they are allowed to use every now and then, don't you?

Moms have bragging rights whenever they need them -- and you will need them often with your girls. Aubrey is beautiful and smart and funny and talented -- gotta love that!

Fab artist and photogenic to boot!! What a cutie pie. You just get yourself a little bumper sticker that says "my child is artist of the week at glen oaks elementary.";)

Oh my goodness, I cant believe my little niece is a kindergartener! She is gorgeous! I predict she becomes school President or captain of the cheer squad. ;-)

What a gorgeous gal! No embarrassing school pictures for that gal. You gotta have some perks to being a mom, right? I think bragging on your kids is one of them. :)

Seriously, I have never seen such beautiful school pictures. What a cutie. And how nice that you get to look forward to teacher's conferences. You better brag girl! I, on the other hand, dread the day when I have to go to teacher's conferences. I cannot imagine what they will have to say about my children that are overly excited about life!
