Little Ray of Sunshine...

I can always count on my little ray of sunshine to lift my spirits. My little ray of sunshine is so excited that she's going to be 5 in one week. She can't wait.

My little ray of sunshine brought her school report home today. Her first year in full time school, even though she's still only 4. She's the youngest in her year, yet she's at the top of the class. 

Her report started off with the words... Where do I begin? Isabelle never ceases to amaze me. 

I have to show you what her class teacher said about Isabelle in her final summary on Isabelle's school report. It brought a lump to my throat.

Looking back over the past year, Isabelle has made so much progress. She is a real star with a natural talent for language and drama and creativity. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have Isabelle in my class. She is a very special individual. Her cheery smile and wonderful lust for learning will carry her through life. Isabelle has strong ideas and a love of books and their characters. Isabelle is proud of her family and enjoys sharing their triumphs.

Isabelle displays excellent communication skills and this, along with her gentle nature and warm smile makes her an excellent role model. The hard work you put into Isabelle's education has already paid off in dividends. I hope always to be a part of Isabelle's life. We will all miss her so much. She is one of my very best friends. Isabelle you must keep up your design work and your acting. When Isabelle decides where she is going in life, the many skills and qualities she possesses along with your support will allow her to achieve her dreams.

How can I not be proud of her after reading that? The whole school report is in the same vein... I am so proud of my nearly 5 year old little ray of sunshine, she's brightened quite a dark week for me.
