Just wanted to share this little artwork my daughter made in kindergarten.
Ms. Linda asked the kids to draw what they wanted to be when they grow up.
There were the usual- firemen, police officers, doctors, veterinarians, dentists, kung fu karate masters, etc...
My daughter drew this precious picture of herself being a mom.
Holding her babies in her arms with a big smile.
I thought it was the sweetest thing!
Being a mom IS the absolute greatest job in the world!
When she gave that little card to me, I thought it was so incredible that she thought so too!
LOVE it!

That same year, she also made this
charming little buttony, glitterey, beaded sequiny frame at the end of the school year.
Ms. Linda had taken pictures over the year of field trips or when you helped out in class and they picked a picture to make a frame for to give to the parents.
I remember this field trip distinctly.
We went to the pumpkin patch at the old train station.
We got to ride around on the train and see all the halloween decorations and what not that they had out for the season.
It was beautiful, fun and also absolutely FREEZING that day- out of the blue FREEZING.
No one was prepared and half the kids and parents were not dressed well for the occasion.

Nonetheless, we had a great time riding the train and getting in the mood for Halloween!
Seems like just yesterday when she was in kindergarten and
yet, she just celebrated her 12th birthday and is going into 7th grade.
I cannot believe my baby girl has grown so fast!
