Natie starts kindergarten tomorrow. To say our entire family is excited, is an understatement. She is Travis and Julie's first child, and our first grandchild. Everything she has done has captivated us and captured our hearts.
She has two years of preschool under her belt. To prepare her for kindergarten and before she graduated from preschool, she had to answer 205 questions about things she learned and needed to know. She correctly answered 204 of these questions and had the highest score her teacher ever saw with one of her students. Please bear with me, but I just had to brag.
The mother of Travis' best friend will be her bus driver, so there will be no hiccups as far as missing her bus stop or knowing where to drop her off on the days Julie and Travis will be working. She has been to the meet-and-greet and met her teacher. Some of her Sunday School friends will be in her class, but most of the children will be new to her.
Because kindergarten is an all-day affair, she was asked to bring a beach towel or small blanket for naptime. So I took time from my Hop to It block of the month and the wheelchair quilt projects to make nap mat for her. I used some leftover squares Julie had from the baby quilt she made for her friend Addie. The fabric is Sandy Gervais' line titled Lovely. I am really excited how this quilt turned out - perfect for a little girl.
So here's to the 42 students in the Class of 2015 and one special little girl! Have a great year.
