A Thousand Words Thursday


Today marks DQ's last day of elementary school. The last day at the school she began Kindergarten, 6 years ago. The school I also attended Kindergarten-2nd grade! Her wishes for the last day of school? "Mom, buy me a plain white t-shirt so I can have everyone sign it!" I think we can make that happen!
