**THIS is the first of a series of updates I started but never posted... This one is actually from October, so I have much more I could share/say about the Bubbs since then. But if I wait to get everything perfect, I may never blog again. Which really could happen anyway. The whole never-blogging-again. So enjoy it while you can! :)**
So here's the first of probably a few updates I will eventually share. Hopefully. There is no way I can catch everything so first I thought I would just give a blog post to each of the kids so you can see how they are growing and what they've been doing!
By the end of the year, she made two best friends (her BFFs as she calls them). She loved her teacher. We were able to go to the Kindergarten Graduation ceremony and watch her receive her "diploma" and four other awards - she earned a PE sportsmanship award, an art award (yay! her favorite!), a reading award, and the Kindergarten citizenship award.

So now THIS year - first grade. Fabulous teacher, I am excited for the year! She loves her class, and has made a few more "BFFs". She has a little boy who was in her class last year and her class this year that she kinda has a little crush on. He wants to sit by her a lot, too... I like to tease her a bit about it. Because I can. And because I was like the most boy-craziest girl ever so I know what it is like. The Bubbs still loves art, but she also loves writing stories and has started doing that more than drawing. She loves reading and just recently learned to ride her bike without training wheels. (Yes, I know, she is 7. Totally our fault because we didn't work on it with her at all until about two weeks ago. And then she caught on pretty quickly.) She is usually well-behaved but is definitely starting to have her own opinions about things (yikes!). It is crazy to me that she is SEVEN years old now! They do grow up too fast, but I love watching her grow up!

got money from the tooth fairy so that's what counts, right?)
