Well, Today starts another year of Addi growing older (and me holding steady)!  Today she started first grade.  We had a wonderful but fast summer go by with lots of swimming, boating playing with friends and crossing off items on our Summer Fun List.  We are 6 teeth down and one more about to fall out, she wanted to save that one for the first day of school!  Lucky teacher!  With as much excitement we care share there is always a heavy heart missing her Daddy.  She wore her locket today to carry him close to her heart, but knowing he is watching and proud from above, can you only imagine the choas he has caused making everyone notice his little girl starting first grade.  And well Mommy couldn't be any prouder.  Today we discussed that I hope she misses me a little, learns at least one thing new, but makes more friends than she can count.  Good Luck my Sweet Addi.
All my Love

Well, she did it!  Made it through graduation of Kindergarten.  I am so lucky to have one of the most amazing, amazingly happy children considering everything she has been through.  She is a true testament of a village raising a child.  On this day, we got it right...

PS - This morning, the first day of summer break, what was the first thing out of her mouth..."I don't have to get out of my pjs!"  Just like her Daddy and his "track suits"

Well, LONG time no chat. I just wanted to drop a line and let everyone know that we are good. Addi is so wonderfully happy that it makes my heart jump a little. We still miss Daddy every day, but a little less tears everytime. Addi and went back to Disney since our last trip with Daddy, it was certainly harder and more emtional for me than her. She just loved the princesses and it was fabulous to have our family there with us, THANK YOU SO MUCH PAPA AND GRAMS! I will have to send pics soon.
Just a few pictures from last fall to see how our girl is growing up. Missing teeth and getting the new BIGGER ones in...I do think she smiles like her Daddy, never showing teeth!
Love to All
