My Little Graduate (Sunday Snapshot)

Miss Reagan finished preschool this week....which is crazy, because I swear she just started.

It's amazing how quickly this year has gone by. And it's even more amazing to think that her first day of preschool last year, was the day before we left to go get Rylie from China. It just reminds me that really, Rylie hasn't been home all that long.

But I digress....

Here's Reagan on her first day, back in September......

....and her last day, earlier this week.

And then ready for her graduation ceremony.....

She had a great time, a great class, and a great teacher (who also taught Jonah).

She and her 3 BFF's have been together for the past 2 years. One of them she's known since infancy. Unfortunately, only one of them will join her at the same school next year. I know she will miss them so much. In fact, when they played a little video of the year's events at their graduation ceremony, she cried. I did too, thanks to Taylor Swift's song that accompanied the video. should be illegal to play those types of songs at sentimental events with moms present.

Anyway, Kindergarten is right around the corner for my girl. It looks like, despite my best efforts and earnest pleas, she's just continuing to grow up. And I don't like it one bit.

These pics were taken with a mix of settings...and different lenses. The first ones were with my 50mm, ISO 100, and a mix of shutter/aperture settings. The last 3 were just with my 18-55mm....admittedly on auto just out of ease due to the craziness of the graduation.


  1. She matured a lot in one year - beautiful pictures!

  2. I feel the same way about time. Your little munchkin is adorable. And I love her outfits.

  3. Lovely shots, beautiful girl and priceless moments ♥ Love it!
