Charli's First School Open House:

Happy Monday friends! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. 

Our weekend was great and we are counting down the days until we get to see daddy again! Yesterday was a first for us and was definitely something too special that could not go without recognition...
We had Charli's very first Open House for school! 

Charli was so excited to show me (and Nana, and even bubba) everything she has been working on at school, where she sits, what she plays with, how she has been the door holder, line leader, flag holder, and where she goes every Wednesday for chapel. We even got to sit in chapel and experience what the kids do each week and the songs and prayers that are said! Can I just tell you how my heart just burst as I sat there watching our sweet girl sing along and do every hand motion to each song and say each prayer (swoon)! 

We couldn't be more proud of our little girl and everything she is learning. Her teacher has said nothing but good things about Charli. How much she loves her personality, her attitude, and her intelligence. She has been amazed at how smart Charli is and everything she already knows. Her teachers exact words... "Charli is incredibly intelligent for her age"

Some other things her teacher said about her that I want to always remember and look back on...
"Charli is always SO happy and excited for school"
"Charli always has a good day"
"Charli is SO funny" (my response: Yes, girlfriend has jokes!)
"Charli is seriously a hoot!"
"Charli gets along with everybody in her class! All of the girls and even all of the boys! It is so funny because everyone ALWAYS asks to sit next to or play with Charli!"

Every single thing positive and every single thing a mother wants to hear about their child.

A few of the things Charli got to show us at open house...

Charli is excelling and enjoying preschool and her daddy and I couldn't be happier! 
We are so proud of you honey, keep up the good work!
