Lizzie Graduated!!!

29 May

From Kinder!!!  What a big day was today!  She was so excited that she was going to graduate that she started planning for it two weeks ago.  She laid out her clothes (not a hard choice considering she wears a uniform shirt) and has been planning her hairdo!  Yes, I know she is only 5, but she is a girl and our hair is important on big days!  She has been begging me for 2 weeks to straighten her hair for her big day.  So last night I went to work.  While I was straightening Lizzie’s hair, Sophia came in and wanted hers done too.  This morning when she woke up, it was curly again.  So we straightened it again.  Then this afternoon, our school got out an hour early so that the kinder could have their graduation.  It was such a neat thing for it to be taken so seriously that the adult classes, high school, and elementary school all got out early for it!!  She did great!  And of course I cried, especially when her teach put pictures up of the individual kids on the first day of school.  We had only been in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks when this picture was taken and boy Lizzie looks so grown up now compared to then.  It was a nice day for our family.  Here are some pictures!

    Felicidades, Lizzie! What a big day and what a beautiful hair-do. I didn’t even recognize you in that picure. I’ll trade my straight hair for your curly hair any day!!!
    Dar abrazos y besos a todos!
