Art Show

It was such a big, special day for our baby girl!  Tonight was Lexie's Preschool's End of the Year Art Show!

Lexie has been counting down the days until the art show.  She was so excited about it, and couldn't stop talking about it!  Her class has been practicing for months, and she was thrilled when she brought the art show invitation home!

Tonight was really the first event where she was the center of attention.  The smile on her face was contagious.  She was so proud to show us her artwork and so excited to perform for us.  She was glowing!

Lexie greeted us in the school basement, where the art show was held, with a huge smile on her face!

She was so excited to see Grant, Dylan, Lily, and I!  She grabbed our hands and led us through the maze of artwork.  It was chaotic, but we chased her around, and she proudly posed in front of each of her beloved pieces of art work.

Lexie was beaming through the entire tour.  We love her so much!

After the tour, Lexie's class presented the two room moms and I (the class historian) with a thank you note and a potted plant.  It was unexpected, and so sweet!



Finally, her entire class performed a few songs and an artistic movement piece for us. They were so cute, and Lexie did a great job!  She obviously inherited the performing gene from her parents! We were so proud of her! I honestly found myself trying to hold back tears at times!

After the show was over, her school hosted a reception, complete with punch and cake!

It is so hard to believe that Lexie only has 3 days of preschool left.  This year went by so quickly.  She keeps saying how much she's going to miss Mrs. Marino and Mrs. Nolan.  I don't blame her.  They are so wonderful, and Dylan and Lexie adore them!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Lily is blessed with the same teachers in 3 years!

It was a memorable night for Lexie, and just as memorable for us!  I was truly struck by how much she's grown over the past 9 months, both physically and emotionally.  Her beauty, inside and out, took my breath away.
