It's funny to think that a day like preschool graduation would hit you so hard. I mean it's preschool after all....but I think for me it really hit me how fast time has gone by since we welcomed Katy to the world.
I always say it, but Katy is defiantly one of a kind. I can't say enough what a neat person I think this girl is. Of course I am sure that you would chalk that up to the fact that I am her mom. But I think if you met her you would get a feel for what I am talking about.
Although Katy is scared to death of anything Halloween, and is sensitive....she is also one of the most thoughtful and caring people I know. She is always so kind to others, she is beyond excited when she can meet someone new and is instantly "best friends" with them (at least in her eyes....by that I mean complete strangers we meet at the park and are bound not to ever see again). She has a huge heart and an interest in learning anything that will fit in her head.
When we moved up to Bountiful I was not expecting this is where we would end up, as we had looked at 40+ houses pretty much all over the valley. Everything fell into place, as it should, but we found our selves moving at the end of August and all of the preschools around here were full. I was feeling pretty desperate when I found Mrs. Bri. She has been teaching for over 7 years (I believe) and had recently moved her family back from China, where her husband was in the military. She decided last minute to start her preschool up (something she wasn't sure about since she had just barley moved back). Boy am I glad I found her. We had a good experience in her last preschool...but if you know Bri then you will understand that she would BLOW any other preschool right out of the water. She was incredibly amazing and caring and is beyond gifted at what she does. I have never seen Katy more excited about learning and going to school. She had a great bunch of kids in her class and they were able to do the neatest things.
Katy was especially excited about all the Chinese she was learning. She said it was her favorite country, ha ha! At the end of the year I felt so strongly about her love of Chinese that I opted to put her into the Chinese Emersion lottery for a school that we are just barley out of bounds for. Unfortunately she did not get in, but I am grateful for all that she learned with Bri and for our experiences there. I am blessed to call her my friend.
