Endings are the new beginnings . . .

13 Jun

Ruth and Ms Chappell

Thursday, my daughter finished her elementary school career.  If I may be allowed a moment of indulgence, she was on Honor Roll every trimester during 4th and 5th grades (when we give letter grades at our school).  She is a well-rounded, well-liked, sweet, creative, loving girl.  I couldn’t be prouder of her.

Ruthie in Kindergarten

Especially since I can still remember where she started back in Mrs. Bruce’s kindergarten class.  Such a sweet, quirky little munchkin.

My heart bursts with pride!

And, now . . . middle school.  Bring it on!

    How wonderful for her! She must be thrilled to have achieved this milestone. What a transitional summer this will be and very exciting.

    My, it just does not seem possible. Your pumpkin in middle school? Seeing that kindergarten photo is so sweet. Congrats to Ruth!

    She’s lovely in the top photo- looks like the perfect stage between little girl and more grown up. Such a bright smile, too.
