three and a half years, and this baby girl has grown into a spunky little girl. and i've been there through it all.
for three and a half years, we have had the pleasure of enjoying this girl 3 days a week. we all love haley and she is honestly just part of our family now. we think of her as one of our own, and treat her like our own. and she returns the favor, by acting just like one of our own. lol! but now it's time for haley to move on to new adventures. preschool, to be exact. it's been the plan for a while now, so this isn't new info to me. i've had plenty of time to get used to the idea, and to get ready for today. it's her last day with us today.
and while we're sad to see her go, and we will miss her like crazy. we also know that it's her time to move on, and the change will be so great for her. haley is ready for a new setting, with new friends to be made, and to learn all sorts of new things in preparation for kindergarten. and i'm not worried about not seeing miss haley again, because i know she'll be around. i already have a list of the weeks that her preschool is closed, and she will always have a spot here when she needs a place to hang out. i think all of that makes it easier for me to see her move on.
i have a special gift for haley's mom and dad that i want to share, because i really think it was a great idea and i'm so proud of how it came out. but i'm going to share that next week, since i havn't given it to them yet and don't want to spoil the surprise. and i have a few more layouts of haley, but i can't share those yet either. so there's definately more haley to come around this blog ;)
so, haley. from all of us. joe, alyssa, sarah, and myself. from the other kids you see around here. and even from grammy, papa, and jenny. we all love you like crazy. we will miss you like crazy. and we are just so thankful for all that you have brought to our lives. you and your spunky attitude will be missed around this house. so make sure and come back real soon ;)
