5 years ago....

today we met Scout!  She has been something else since the moment she came into this world.  She's been raring to go and well......going full speed ahead since the very beginning.  

I'm having a hard time with the fact that she will be starting Kindergarten in the fall.   

She's mature and smart and plenty ready to leave me.  I'm just not ready to have her gone from me for the majority of the day.

I'm not sure this girl has ever met a stranger.  She wants to know everyone.  If there are kids in a restaurant or store near us, she wants to know their names.  

Scout is all spunk, humor, and I must admit....attitude.  Bossy, did I mention bossy?  It is very plain that she is the big sister.

This girl loves animals like no other.  She is plain crazy over anything furry and cuddly.  Frogs, snakes, alligators...not so much.

Horses are her obsession.  She loves race horses, jumping horses, little horses, big horses.  Just in the last couple of weeks she is finding great success in riding her own "big horse".  Talk about proud.

Scout Preston is also tough.  Yes she dolls up and loves it, but I'll promise you she can and will stand up for herself.  No one will push her around...ever!

Scout, you are a fun, sweet, loving girl that has changed our lives forever.  We love you so much!

Here's to the adventures of the next 5 years!!

Thanks to Kaitlyn Smith Photography!  I hear I've been uninvited to her picture sessions from here on out because she does so good without me.

Hahahaha I'm SO glad I still had my camera ready when she decided to bail off over the seat at the end of the session. That's our Scoutie, right there! :)

Love you sweet girl! Can't believe she's already 5. I still remember exactly where I was when we heard she was here!
