Ella aka Kindergartner


I sit here tonight reflecting on the past 5 1/2 wonderful years with our little Ella. And I can't help but wipe away a few tears:( I can't believe tomorrow I will be sending her to school with her big sister, Aubrey. The time just flies by too quick-I really wish I could make it slow down. . . From the day she was born, Ella has been a huge joy and blessing in our lives. I remember when she was a baby we called her "smiley" or "our smiley baby" because she smiled the hugest smiles and was such a happy girl. She always has had a special little spirit-a spirit of love and kindness. She has a very creative mind and loves to make things. She especially loves to make things to give to others as gifts:) She is so thoughtful like that. She is a spunky kid who loves to dance and always makes us laugh with the funny things she says. She is also a persistent little girl who will sit for hours finishing puzzles or completing a task I wouldn't have the patience for. Anyone that knows Ella, loves her. There is nothing not to love about this girl! Not only does she have a shining inner beauty, but she is radiantly beautiful on the outside too. I am so proud of you Ella and the little lady you are becoming. Thank you for always choosing the right and setting a good example for others. Thank you for also being a loving daughter and sister. We love you and hope you have a wonderful first day of Kindergarten~ Love, Mommy & Daddy

Oh... I will be thinking of you tomorrow too.

Oh thanks your slide show made me cry. It was beautiful.

Well my dear friend it sounds like you will be needing Kleenex too.

I have to admit I am a bit nervous too. My Callie had to have a better year this year.

Good Luck my dear!

The slide show made me cry also. Time just flies. I know it is a bittersweet time for you and Joey, but Ella is simply a reflection of the two of you. I hope that this year is a wonderful year for all of you.

It makes me so sad that we don't live close to each other because I know Ella and Avery would be such cute little friends!
