Before graduation and the fabulous production that Catherine Ellis and friends put on we headed to the doctor for well visits - doesn't everyone do that to start the day off right?! I knew there weren't any shots for either this go around and we adore Dr. Farr - so it was all good! They loved every minute!
Family and friends gathered Friday morning to witness Catherine Ellis's year-end play that they had been hard at work on for many, many weeks. It was just precious and Catherine Ellis was a star of course! I was not as prepared as I thought and ran out of video space on my phone, but I managed to capture the parts CE was in so it worked out just fine!
The stage was set perfectly:
The Rainbow Friends have been working on the set for months now!
Sweet little program

Our little family!
We had several family members and friends join us for the big occasion - it was so very sweet to have them all there. Catherine Ellis is so blessed to have so many that love and cherish her - I know her village will raise her well - and believe me, we need all the help we can get :)

Yay for finishing Pre-K!

We are so thankful for the village that supports us, loves us, builds us up and is there through the good, the bad and the ugly. While Pre-K graduation isn't a huge deal, it's super fun to support your children through all of their milestones in life - no matter how great or small they are. Our family and friends always oblige us and jump in on the fun - Catherine Ellis and Caroline have no shortage of support to get them through the milestones of life. For that, we are eternally grateful. Thank you for loving us so well!
She was a wild, wicked slip of a girl. She burned too bright for this world.

Keep burning bright, Catherine Ellis! We love you as deep as the ocean and as wide as the sky!
