This was Zoe on the last day of kindergarten:
I can’t believe how much she has grown up. She has become a beautiful, smart, sassy, funny, sweet, and strong little girl. They don’t give A-F letter grades in kindergarten. Instead the grades are M (meets expectations), P (progressing), or I (needs improvement). She got Ms in all 50 grading categories. She had 100% in math, and she is already reading at an upper-first grade level. She’s even managed to stay out of trouble this second semester.
She’s incredibly sweet. I get hugs, kisses, cuddles, and notes like this one all the time:
She’s also quite the artist. Here are two of my favorite art projects from this year.
She’s shy at first, but once she warms up, she makes friends right away. Her friend Elle lives in our neighborhood, was in her class, and is in her Daisy Girl Scout troop. She wrote this: (“Elle is my BFF. She’s so fun to play with. We like riding our bikes. And best of all she likes to play with me so much, and she likes Uno, and cooking, and likes to play with Barbies and princesses.”)
I love this girl!
