Our little girl is growing up

Ashlin is our little girl and she is growing up way too fast. In a few weeks she will turn 5. Where did the time go with her? I became a stay-at-home mom when Ashlin was born and I am a little sad that next fall she will be going off to Kindergarten.

How fast she is growing up was confirmed this morning at Parent/Teacher Conferences when Mrs. Nedrow told us that Ashlin is definitely ready for Kindergarten.

Last week was Catholic Schools Week and this picture was taken on Thursday morning before school. Thursday's dress was red uniform shirts and khaki pants because a photographer was coming to take a group picture of the entire elementary school. They had the kids all stand in the shape of a cross and the teachers lined the cross wearing khaki pants with white shirts.

After I got Ashlin dressed last Thursday, I told her that she looked like she was heading off to Kindergarten. She was so happy and I know she is ready to go to Kindergarten. But at the same time it made me sad to think that in a few short months, she will be wearing a school uniform every day and going to Kindergarten.

Take care,



  1. Cute uniform picture!

    Where does the time go?! Don't blink!

    I thought this post was for Erica since I have her b-day card (and Target gift card) in my calendar and ready to be mailed this week! HA HA!

  2. Awww...look at the girls all dressed in their red uniforms! Hope that they had a great Catholic Schools Week!! How exciting....Kindergarten is just around the corner!


  3. Your girlies are so cute! They look great in their red uniform shirts! Hope you're staying warm!


  4. I didn't know that Alyssa and Ashlin are the same age. Lysee will be 5 in June and headed to Kindergarten too (sniff, sniff). I bet their school picture will be really neat.

  5. It is so sad how fast the time passes, I feel it almost every day! What a great idea for the school group picture!
