1. Kindergarten graduation was a lovely day. The ceremony was fun and short and Alaina said her lines and sang her songs.

We couldn't be happier with her kindergarten year at Collegiate Academy. If anyone is looking for a great charter school (in Jefferson County) we can hook you up.

Thus ends our first week of summer break. I'll leave you with this little money shot:
