It's All About Neeley Day!

Oh My Gosh! That girl of ours is certainly growing up waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too fast!

This year brings about so many changes for us, but we can't forget how it all affects our Lil Miss.

She had a GREAT time at her camps this summer, and just finished her Girl Scout day camp last week. Since she is skipping the 5th Grade and going directly in to 6th Grade, that means she is also skipping over to the Cadette level in Girl Scouts so we had to Bridge her last week at camp too. {Pictures above}

She made several new friends at this camp and that is exciting. Hoping it helps her to pass the rest of our time here quickly.

And I've never met a craftier kid!

She just completed a 4 week Purse Quilting class here at our Arts & Crafts store on post. Our of 5 participants, she was the only 10 year old girl among other 18 year old girls. :) Makes my Mommy heart proud! How cute is her bag!?! She is LOVING showing it off.

We are VERY excited for this new school year. 6th grade here brings so many more opportunities for students and Neeley is ready! We are looking in to the 6th Grade curriculum in Kansas as well but so far do not see where she may have any real issues.

Will keep you posted!!
