This is a side view of our school. We parked in this parking lot and walked in from here every morning. Our last morning was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Sunny and cool. A perfect goodbye morning.
This is sweet Mrs. Kerr. She was my "floater" helper this year but she is sooooo much more than that. She totally took over my class the first two months of school while I was home with Finley. She did an awesome job...I didn't have to worry about my class a bit! She always went above and beyond to help me. She baked us goodies. She babysat for us. She is such a precious person! She actually lived in Philadelphia for a little bit and knew me while I was little bitty. Small world! We miss Mrs. Kerr so much!!!
This is Mrs. Keaton, one of Finley's teacher. She is absolutely the sweetest person! I was SO thankful to have her taking care of Finley!
This is Finley's other teacher, Mrs. Everlena. I cannot say enough about how precious she is! I worked with her some in college so I have known her for awhile. I have never ever ever heard her complain. Not once. And ya'll, that is HARD to do when you work in childcare. :) I know I haven't come close to that! I have never heard her be harsh or even frustrated with a child (again, hard to do sometimes!). I always felt 100% comfortable with Finley being with Mrs. Keaton and Mrs. Everlena....and that is saying a lot coming from me! I am not easy to please when it comes to my kiddos. :)
My sweet little Zebra class. :) This was our end of the year party!
I miss this sweet bunch sooooo much! (So does Ellington!!!!)
Marris was Ellington's closest friend this year. They were basically inseparable. They had school together on MWF mornings, dance on Tuesday mornings, and most Thursday mornings Ellington would play at Marris' house. We were so blessed by her and her family this past year!
I LOVE these sweet girls.

My little bunch of Zebras.
It was such a hard morning and school is still the part of Starkville that I miss the most but I am trying to focus on the fact that we had such a precious place to be rather than the fact that it is no longer a part of our lives. I have so many sweet friendships that I will always hold dear and I am SO thankful for the precious ladies who loved on my girls.
