Valencia goes to Kindergarten

My sweet little Valencia is 6 years old this year and is SO excited to being starting school. Last year she was so ready and missed the cut off by 3 days. So finally it's her time. And now her little sister Valoria is wishing she could go too.

There of course was plenty of paperwork for the parents to fill out but Valencia was glad to see she got to write her name on her cubby badge for the year. She always puts a heart for the i in her name:)
After her Kindergarten orientation her Dad and I took her out to a restaurant all by herself. She brought along her favorite stuffed animals. "Belly" the Penguin and "Daisy" the Lemur.

Good Luck Pretty Girl~! Have fun at School~!

The look I like best though came with a soft touch of acrylic paint on the very tips
