I haven't updated in a while. Actually, it's been six months. So, I'll start with updates on the oldest child and work my way down to Miss Chloe.

Aubrey graduated from VPK in June. It was very exciting, and yes, I cried. I feel I cry at every event she has. It's so difficult to watch her grow up. Once VPK was over, Aubrey started Summer camp at the Y. I remember dropping her off the first day and... crying. Can I blame all the tears on pregnancy hormones? She was such a big girl. She wore her backpack and walked from the car to camp all alone. I was so proud of her, but also sad because my little girl was finally growing up.

The last week of camp was called Camp Idol. They had an awards ceremony and talent show. Aubrey's "talent" was dancing. She and a friend danced to Lady GaGa's Poker Face. I guess I should be thankful she didn't go with her initial plan of Single Ladies from Beyonce. I can only imagine the dance she would have done then. So, during the talent show they gave out awards. Aubrey's ability to talk to anyone about anything paid off. She was awarded "Most Likely to be a Talk Show Host", and "Most Unforgettable Camper". We were SO proud, and yes, I had a few tears, but I wouldn't really call it crying.

Now we start the kindergarten journey. Aubrey's school was a B rated school, which I was satisfied with, but just before school started the new D grade was released. I then questioned if this was the school for her. So far, I am happy with everything. Aubrey likes her teacher, and I'll begin volunteering there this week, so hopefully I'll get to know her better. Keith and I are also involved in SAC, and the school is working to improve their D grade.

I am so proud of the little girl Aubrey has become. She loves her little sisters, and shows concern for others. She is beautiful inside and out, and she'll be the first to tell you! She's confident, smart, and strong willed. She is very much Keith's girl. They are more alike than either will admit.
