Star Senior

One of the highlights of being a "Senior" at Hope's school is the week that you are the "Star Senior." Hope has been counting down until her week since she started her new school. Some of the rewards for being "Star Senior" are thing so important like: Sitting on a red bench next to the teachers during group, helping set the tables for snack/lunch, opening the door to the playground, sleeping in a special spot for nap time, holding the flag see just how special this honor is, right? You also get to tell everyone about yourself. We had to fill out a booklet of information together last weekend. It asked several questions, and I want to record some of her answers.
  • What's your favorite color? Blue and red
  • What do you want to be when you grow up? A mommy
  • What do you do well? Hula Hoop
  • What is something you like to do? Go to the cousins' house
  • What is something you don't like to do? Leave the cousins' house
  • What is something that makes you sad? When daddy goes on a trip
  • What is your favorite food? Blueberries, strawberries, green beans and chocolate milk
  • What is your favorite season? All of them

She also has to tell everyone her address and her telephone number, so there is a little pressure too! She knew it all.

We were also given a 1/4 sheet of posterboard to make a collage of Hope. I can't tell you how hard it was to sum up nearly 5 years of this precious girl's life on such a small place. Here is what I came up with:

And to get even more sentimental... I found this picture of Hope at the Infant Center her first time as the flag holder! She was still in the baby room, but my friends from the freshmen room came and stole her so she could hold the flag. I remember how proud she was!
Also, her "Senior Pictures" came in this week. How grown up is she?

Unfortunately, our star senior was out sick one day. The devestation that came at midnight Monday night when she was throwing up when she realized she was going to miss a day as star senior... Sadness. Luckily it was a short lived bug. Now, I am sick with a sinus infection. I can't talk either. I feel so yucky. I am not going to post the dates of our disney trip on the blog, but know that it is coming up in the near future, and we all need to be well! We have been dreaming of taking Hope to Disney World for her fifth birthday since she was born. I don't want sickness messing up our plans! Could we live in a sterile bubble until it's time to leave?
