My little princess is growing up way too fast. This past May/June she has turned 6, graduated from kindergarten, had her first dance recital, and started reading chapter books. Time is whizzing by right in front of me and I am powerless to stop it.
For Alanna’s 6th birthday she chose to have a teddy bear picnic birthday party. We asked the guests to bring their favorite teddy bear to the picnic. Each child got their very own picnic baskets filled with teddy bear shaped sandwiches and other teddy bear snacks. For dessert, they were served lemonade cupcakes topped with a teddy bear under a picnic umbrella.
The first week of June, Alanna graduated Kindergarten from Hillside Academy. I cried almost as much as I did the day she started kindergarten. She has learned so much this year and has changed right before my eyes in so many ways. I cannot express how proud I am of Alanna. She is so smart and beautiful.

Alanna had her first dance recital on June 11th. She was the most beautiful little dancer there!!! There was lots of family there to see Alanna dance. Nana and Papa, Mamaw and Grandpa, Gran and Papaw, and Aunt Joy all came to the recital and brought flowers. Alanna did a ballet dance to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and a Tap Dance routine to Rockin’ Robin. I was one VERY proud momma!!
Of all these wonderful things that she has done this year, the most proud that Alan and I are of our beautiful little princess is that this summer she has accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior and is now my sister in Christ. Alanna is one of GOD’s princesses now!!! She asks me almost everyday when she will be baptized. It is so wonderful to see the excitement in her eyes.
