Sweet Ellie had her 1st day of PreK this past week. I can hardly believe that she'll be in Kinder next year! Let's not talk about it. I have contemplated holding her back a year because she does have a summer birthday, but Gracie has a later summer birthday, and we didn't hold her back and she's done great. Plus, her daddy thinks we should send her on. Time will tell....but likely she will start right on time. *sniff, sniff*
One of the youth events they have at church near the beginning of the school year is STEVE...Gracie enjoyed bringing some friends with her. Always a fun time!
The students are encouraged to invited friends and gave them these little business cards to hand out with information on the back. Such an easy way to start the conversation.
A week or so before school started, Gracie was excited to get contacts! She wore them for about a week and then had to wear glasses again for awhile while she waited for a different prescription to come in since the first ones were making her have to squint when reading things far away. She's started on the new ones now and says they're much better, so now we just need to go back for a re-check and then place the big order. She's worn glasses for about 6 years, so she was just ready to try contacts!

Katie & her school BFF at "Meet the Teacher." They haven't been in the same class since Kinder, but they've stayed close.
It's going to be a great school year for my girls!
