Last Day of School

Today is Ellie's last day of MDO at Englewood.  I am a little sad.  Her experience there has been so much more than I thought it would be!  She has learned so much, become so independent and made the sweetest little friends.  Last night we were playing outside and cut some hydrangeas from our bush.  She was being the sweetest little helper (as always) and every time we would cut a stem she would name a kid in her class.  She wanted to take flowers to everyone today!  She has such a sweet and giving little heart.  I hope it always stays that way.

She said she was going to give Ms.Christy and Ms. Cindy (her teachers) and all of her friends a big hug today.  She talks about them all the time.  I know she is too young to realize she won't see them much anymore.  I  also know when we move she will have TONS of kids her age to play with all the time.  It's just a little bittersweet.  I guess this is the first of many changes we have ahead of us!

Anyway, on with the pictures!  I love comparing the first day to the last day.

August 2011:

And this morning, May 22nd.  Her last day!

I think the biggest change is obviously her hair!  It has really grown.  She also looks like she grew a foot!  Time sure does fly.


  1. I had no idea y'all went to Englewood - that's my home church! I grew up that Mother's Day Out (and Ms. Cindy is so great).

  2. Oh Emily she's precious! I love that you showed a before and after picture. What a change!
    Nyla starts KDO at BUMC this summer, in just a couple of weeks (eek!) and I'll have to make sure I take a before and after picture too. Time flies!
