we celebrated caroline's 5th grade graduation this week.
she finished strong & had fantastic year
making new friends, trying many new things
& having a great year academically.
she had a wonderful teacher ---really wonderful teacher
( two actually!)
who she fell in love with & was a little kindred spirit with too.
when we moved into this area years ago i knew we were blessed to live in
one of the best school clusters anywhere & my girls have each been given
an excellent education, preparing them well for the next step.
little bit was on student council,
junior beta club & national honors society.
she qualified for the presidential award too.
last night she found out she moved up to the elite company at dance.
it's been a great week for her.
