My Baby's Moving On!

As promised, here are some pictures of the past few week's festivities.  Around here, a lot of people make a big deal over 8th Grade Graduation.  Personally, I don't think of it as a huge milestone as you have no choice but to go on to High School.  Having said that, I am super-proud of my daughter Mallory and all of her accomplishments thus far.

At a special ceremony for 8th graders last week, she received 3 awards, including the President's Award for making the Honor Roll every marking period.


Pictures before the 8th Grade Dance.



Me & My Girl.   We are both almost 6 feet tall!



The Gang.  These kids are from the neighborhood and have been friends since Kindergarten.

Mal on her big day!

Now that all of the hoopla is over, we are ready to relax here and enjoy the Summer.  Hope you are enjoying yours!

xoxo,
Kim
