Can you believe it?

She's a Kindergarten Graduate!


Today my baby graduated from from Kindergarten. Can you believe it. I was okay until they put on their caps and held up their certificates and the Principal announced,
"Mom's and Dad's I present to you the class of 2021!"

Ty turns to me and says do you realize how old we will be then? I looked at him and he says...
"50"
!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are Jilli and her papa. He'll be 50 when she graduates from high school.
I'll still be 49.


Jilli and my mom.

Jilli and her teacher Mrs. Austin. She was a great teacher.
So fun and warm and loving.

It was a great day. Until we took Jilli out for lunch with one of her buddies. We went to, of course, McDonald's. She felt so crappy. I felt so bad. She didn't want to eat or even stay to play. Poor thing. We came home and she went into her room to lay down. Thankfully she felt better after a while.

I hope she feels better in 2021 and is able to enjoy her graduation fully.

Love you Jilli!

Congrats to little Jillian. Btw - I still can't believe how much her hair has grown since the head shave. She reminded me of an Ingalls girl in that first photo. :)

I think preschool and kindergarten graduations are the hardest! I hate my babies to grow up.

She's already lost her top teeth? Ethan doesn't even have any loose ones yet!

Congrats to Jillian!

Congratulations to her on her big day! I, too will be 49 when my youngest graduates. However, my husband will only be 48. Jerk.

I remember having a heart attack when they said my daughter's kindergarten class would graduate high school in the year 2000!

So cutie---she wasn't smiling much, so I figured she was either bored or not feeling well...heh, heh.

Glad she is doing better.

I have 9 more days until I have a kindergarten graduate!

She's a cutie! I almost named my 2nd child Jillian. But then she came out a he-- and that would not have looked so good.
