It’s fitting that I post these photos this week, as students are going back to school from their Christmas break! When I discovered I forgot to edit and post True’s graduation photos, I promised myself I would have them ready before her spring break! haha.
Watching True and her little brother Tagger grow up has been fun. I’ll admit, a lot of times its been through social media and text messaging. Being about 3..5-4 hours from home, you miss things. However, every time I get to the see them and my other family, I try to soak it in as much as I can and be thankful for the time together.
True has always been a fun child to be around. She’s smart, inquisitive, independent, loveable, funny and the list continues. She loves astronomy and ballet. Loves Hatchimals and carries a notebook and pen around with her so she is always ready to take notes. She brings joy and laughter to everyone she meets and she’s only 6 years old.
I was able to take off the day to watch her graduate Kindergarten. She goes to a small elementary school out in the Big Country. Abilene, TX area for those not familiar with Texas. One of my favorite things that the elementary school did was bring together the graduating Kindergarten students and the graduating High School students together for a photo opportunity and to give a visual to the Kindergarten students of what their future is. I shed quite a few tears while taking photos of the group and I’d be lying if I denied tearing up right now.
True won the Superintendent Award from her teacher. It’s an award given to one student from each class that shows leadership, excellence in academics and being a helpful student to the teacher. She also won several other awards. SO many to name, so here is a photo of some of us holding all of her awards that she won.
She makes her family proud! My hope for True is that she continues to push herself both academically and personally. She loves to learn and I hope that never changes. I can’t wait to watch her grow up and see where her interests take her. True is relentless and will push herself to achieve her goals. Below are all the photos from her Kindergarten graduation. Congratulations, True!
Check back tomorrow for a sneak peek of a portrait session with one of my coworkes!
