I can't begin to explain how much I love my Elle.  She's growing up before my eyes and it's fun. She's in 3rd grade and I just don't want this school year to end.  She is HAPPY.  She has an amazing teacher.  One of the things Elle always tells me that her teacher Mrs. Downing says is, "if it's important to you, it's important to me".  Isn't that great?  She plays a game called "States" every single day at recess.  There's a painted map of the United States on the playground's black top and she and her friends have made up some sort of tag game with it.  In the car, she rules the radio and likes it loud.  It drives me nuts.  The funniest thing is I feel like just yesterday I was doing that in the car with my mom.  Her favorite TV show is "Good Luck Charlie" on the Disney channel.  She is still just as sweet as ever. I really don't think that will ever change.  She is a good and sweet girl to her core.  One foot is still firmly planted in her little girl world and she still loves to play dolls with her sisters but the other is wanting to grow-up. It's so cute to watch.  I took this picture of her randomly the other day.  I was on my computer and she just pulled this chair up next to me and was chatting away.  It was so cute that I made her let me take her picture.  I wanted to remember her just like this forever.  She's my little buddy and I adore her.
