Off to Kindergarten

I asked Ella what she wanted to do for her last day with me as her caregiver before heading off to begin her school career.  She said, "Make gingerbread cookies!"
 So here she is a-poof in flour
I'm gonna miss this kiddo

She is darling and has been a joy to follow. She has been quite the model for your lovely crochet projects and a big helper in your kitchen. I pray the very best for her in school.

That first picture looks like a flour advertisement in a holiday magazine!

Do I detect a "hole in the heart" moment in the last sentence?

She is so beautiful and I know you will indeed miss her. Now think of all the fun you two will have when she gets to show you all she is learning every day. That will be something to look forward to.

I'll bet you will miss her, Lorraine. Our little SweetCheeks headed off yesterday and it is bittersweet-that's for sure- xo Diana

We're going to miss her too! What a blessing for you to know how much you've helped prepare her for this next adventure in her life!

She is a darling little girl. And an able assistant in the kitchen. She will be a star in her class, I am sure. xo

When my oldest daughter Kendra went off to Kindergarten, her 3 year old sister, Heather, and I walked her to school. It was an unusually quiet walk home and Heather went silently to the bookcase and brought me her favorite book, "Polly's Pet", about a cat who runs away from home. As we adventured through the book once more she began to cry, "Mommie, when can I go to Heathergarten with Kendra?" Sweet memories. Thanks for sharing yours.

She's absolutely adorable, LDH. A really darling. What beautiful memories you made! Susan

She is so beautiful! How blessed you have been to have her with you and what a blessing you have been to her and her parents! My granddaughters start 'big school' today too :)

What a little doll...soo cute. I am sure you'll miss your little companion, and yet I think she is well prepared now for her next season in life. They grow up TOO fast!

Debbie Petras said...

I think baking with a child is one of those gifts we get to participate in. Ella will remember these days with you I'm sure. How fun! And I love how you wrote that she will be heading off to begin her 'school career'. I'm sure her teacher will love her.

blessings and love,
Debbie

What a cutie pie! I can't wait until my sugar plum is old enough to make cookies with me ... then again ... I want her to stay tiny!

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a cute little girl! I think she looks like you. I am sure you treasure the special memories you now hold of your time together. I have some myself of our last times together before school.
