Lucy's Graduation

It seems like just yesterday I was sending this girl off to Kindergarten....

Now she's all grown up and we are finished with her first official year of school!

Stella had to get in the pic too. Annie was probably still upstairs grumbling something about sleep or juice. She is not my morning person.

We were so blessed to have such a fabulous teacher for Lucy this year. I literally could not have asked for/prayed for/wished for a better kindergarten experience. As some of you know, we moved into our house in August of last year, and the kindergarten that Lucy was registered for was about 30 minutes away, so last minute we decided to move her to one in downtown Newnan that was about 6 minutes away, and I'm so glad we did. It is the sweetest little school, plus it was only half a day AND she had Fridays off. Oh how we loved our Fridays!

On Monday they had Kindergarten Graduation. I'm so glad they have's such a sweet time for the kids and their families. I cannot believe how fast Lucy is growing up. She was my first baby!! And now she is almost 6 and has graduated from kindergarten. I need a time fairy.

They had a sweet graduation ceremony, complete with diplomas and caps and gowns. Lucy's diploma is upside down. Apparently they didn't cover that in class.

After the ceremony we had a brunch and the kids performed Eric Carle's The Grouchy Ladybug.

And who do you think The Grouchy Ladybug was?

Lucy was the star of the show. I'm assuming she was chosen for the lead role because of her acting ability, not because of her grouchiness......but I could be wrong there.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

It seems like I am constantly in prayer over this girl and the Lord's plans for her. I am trying to give up my own plans and submit to His. I forget sometimes that she is a child of God first, and that I am just blessed enough to be a part of her life too. I KNOW that the Lord has a plan for Lucy. A good plan, an amazing plan, a plan that will lead her straight to Him.

Congrats Lucy! We are so proud of you.
