Guess Who's In the 5th Grade?!

10:00:00 AM






Hey y'all!
Yes! You read that correctly, I have a 5th grader! I feel so old now. The past several weeks have had me on an emotional roller coaster. My sweet P (Phoenix) has just entered the 5th grade... the last of her elementary years.. the beginning of becoming a pre-teen! She will be 11 next month and my heart is feeling all kinds of ways!

On one hand, I am so happy to see the amazing young lady she is becoming. On the other hand, I miss that little girl that fall asleep when I did her hair, wanted everything Dora and could eat "Cearul" (cereal) all day, well she still could lol. My baby is growing up and while we may not have a blood connection, our hearts are forever bound!

So... to help me ease the stress of having a 5th grader, I decided to remember this very special moment by asking my sweet P a few questions!

M:What are you most excited about for 5th grade?
P: To get to finally wear my new clothes and shoes!

M: What is your biggest fear for 5th grade?
P: Hmmm... to be honest, I don't have one.

M:What's your favorite thing about elementary school?
P: Recess!

M:What is your favorite subject?
P:Writing and Art.

M:What are you excited to learn about this year?
P: Science, everything about science!



This summer I read my favorite book to Phoenix and Thailand called "Nothings Fair In The Fifth Grade" by: Barthe DeClements. It is a coming of age book about a young girl that has a new girl join her class and things start to go wrong! After revelations of home life, school life and the what the future has in store, they become great friends.

 I absolutely loved this book growing up! I first heard this book when i was in 4th grade so I thought it was necessary to read it to the girls at this time. I think they really liked it as well! They laughed at certain points and even felt sympathy for a few of the characters.

So..

To my dear sweet P, we are so proud of you and we know you are going to ROCK 5TH GRADE!!
