Here are some pictures of Grace just before she left for her first day of kindergarten!  Grace could not have been any more excited that morning.

Daddy gave Grace and extra special hug before he left for work that morning.

Jack was such a little gentleman on Grace's first morning of school...he wanted to carry Grace's backpack for her because it was so heavy.

Here is Grace walking to find her teacher, who was standing outside of the school.

This is the last picture that I took of Grace before I left.  I had Grace's bright smile and sparkly blue eyes pictured in my mind all that day and I felt comforted knowing how happy Grace was at school.  I also love this picture because I can see her teacher, Mrs. Penley, looking at and smiling at our Grace.  I couldn't wait to pick up Grace later that day and that smile and twinkle of hers was still there!  Grace's first words to me after we hugged each other were, "I can't wait to go back to school tomorrow!"  It was a great first day.

We can feel Grace's excitement and joy exude right through these pictures. She looks as though she could hardly contain her exuberance. In the second picture, you can see the balerina in her.
The picture with Daddy is so touching, his little girl on his knee. Then Jack, so devoted to his big sister, so eager to be part of whatever she's doing. We are thrilled to know that Grace is eager and happy to be at school.

Love across the miles,
Memere and Pepere

Love these pictures of our girl! Grace is going to be a teacher's dream student....a good listener, polite, happy, helpful, kind, a hard worker, sweet, and so bright! She is just aglow and twinkling!

And, our Jack, how wonderful is he?!!

Love to all three, Kindergarten Grace, Kind Jack, and Cute Eve.

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
