Another school year is winding down. I remember this time last year when I just couldn't believe Rachael was leaving the only school she has ever known. I couldn't imagine what next year would hold for her.
I've learned that I sent her to her first day of 6th grade a little girl.
She came home from the 1st day of 6th grade a young lady.
I've learned that she will pick her Dad over me any day. She is his little girl.
I've learned that she is incredibly smart. That she is in all "gifted talented" classes. And that she is an honor roll student with all B's. Imagine what she could do if she gave it a little more effort.
I've learned that she is the most social child alive. She texts, facebooks, soccer 3x a week, she has a running trainer 2x a week, she has an 8th grade bestie and a 7th grade bestie, which she says is her way of succeeding in high school. Yes, she is already planning. And apparently she does a lot of planning in school because she gets her seat moved for chit-chatting.
I've learned she is a hair perfectionist. She is very serious about her hair and if it is not right, she is not happy. I so wish she loved her curly locks, they are so beautiful. Thank goodness her Dad brings her to school everyday.
I've learned that she may fight with her brothers and she may kick them out of her room 15 times a day. She loves them. And she protects them.
