30: To my sweetest sugar pop pop, I remember talking to other moms the first day of kindergarten and hearing about all the fears they had regarding their children and school. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, that not only would you fit right in, but I knew you would truly enjoy it! From the second you were born, you have loved being around people. Your big smile shined so bright and your sweetness always caught everyone’s attention. Almost instantly, everywhere we went in Sedalia Park, YOU were recognized and people would come up and talk to you as if they had known you for years. We have also been very blessed to have had so many WONDERFUL teachers! Mrs. Bernard and Ms. Danielson not only taught you many great things but taught mommy too. By example, they taught us both how to respect others and speak kindly but firmly, with LOVE. Their tenderness with you made me melt!! I knew you would never miss me while you were at school because the love you received daily from them both was enough to keep you more than happy! Now don’t think it was all sweetness, you came home smarter everyday and loved to tell me all about what you did while you were at school. You had so much fun with all of the wonderful activities that Sedalia Park had to offer that your first year of school was nothing but a BLAST! Mrs. Zahrndt taught us both how to have patience!!! She had such an awesome way of pushing hard without getting frustrated and never giving up on what she knew you could accomplish. She spoke so sweetly to you while at the same time teaching you boundaries that would ensure your success in years to come. She knew just how to keep you focused enough to get your school work done without crushing that happy little spirit of yours. Her simple, common sense approach to teaching and calm demeanor gave you a great foundation to grow on. Ms. Hall taught us how to have fun even while work had to be done. Though she has a million wonderful qualities, her ability to really understand you was my favorite above all! As if having one year with her wasn’t enough, I remember how overjoyed we ALL were when she decided to loop up with your class. How lucky were you to have a second year of exposure to everything she had to offer. Your second year wasn’t only different because you were now calling her Mrs. Dyer, but you, along with all of your friends, were starting to mature. My eyes are starting to tear up as I remember how great she was with you. You could tell she truly LOVED YOU!!! Like me, she wanted the absolute best for you and made sure to talk to you about life and your role in this world CONSTANTLY! She was there to help you navigate through challenges with friends and school and helped me keep things in perspective. The bond that was made between the three of us that year was special. Alexis, I hope you know how lucky you are to have a genuine woman like that in your life, she has promised me that when life gets you down, she will be there for you and I believe her!
31: Then it was time to leave the comfort of our good friend and move on to 4th grade. I remember every time I told people that Mrs. Craft was your teacher, they smiled and said “You will LOVE her!” they were all SOOOOO right! She is an amazing teacher and that year I saw you become a student, not just a little girl who enjoyed the “social” part of school, fought homework and didn’t like tests, but a girl who now saw challenges as something to overcome. I watched you strive to be better EVERYDAY and for me there is no better gift she could have given you. When things got difficult, you never gave up, even when you didn’t reach the goals you had set for yourself. You always continued to push and with Mrs. Craft’s help, you found innovative ways to learn. I don’t believe that you can teach someone to love learning. I do however believe that by example, people have the ability to create an environment that makes you WANT to LOVE to LEARN and that is what she did for you!!! Your final year at Sedalia Park, 5th grade. Though I am so happy and excited for you to go on to the next step of your life, I am sad to see you leave such a great place. Let me tell you though, you could not have asked for a better team of teachers to finish out your years here. Ms. Hurt has so many qualities that just make me smile She doesn’t put up with much and keeps you guys in line, but has kept life fun. I think what you have learned the most from her this year is how to just let stuff roll off your shoulders. When you get to middle school you will see how needed that is. She has a competitive spirit that I LOVE and doesn’t get bogged down with the craziness of life, even when the unexpected happens. What can I say about Ms. Hanna, could you do anything but LOVE that crazy woman??? Her high voltage teaching style paired with her strength in discipline and “let it roll” way of thinking too, was just the thing you all needed while Ms. Hurt was gone taking care of sweet Lina! This also was the year that Math started to make sense to you. Mrs. Coss, along with so many other things that she exposed you to, taught you how to figure math out and follow logical steps and sometimes think a little differently to get the answer you needed. She too has become a close friend that we have made at The Park and her love for teaching has helped you to see the possibilities of what your school experience can be like if you just put your heart into it. Alexis, your happiness and love of life is contagious. It has brought you many, many good friends throughout your years at Sedalia Park and their friendship will be something you will always remember. How you treat everyone around you and the fact that you are honest with yourself in times of turmoil is something I have always been so proud of. Your kindness and ability to make friends with ANYONE makes you special and the variety of close friends you still have, is a testament to your sweet spirit. Your heart for friendship truly has no boundaries and you are always willing to forgive and move on, that is a trait I hope you never lose! Continue to stand up for what you believe in, even if it’s not popular. Continue to make good choices in friends and politely back away from friendships that may not be best for you. Continue to challenge yourself in school and in life. Most of all, continue to be you, a girl who has a heart for God that allows you to love people the way you do. Don’t let anyone change you, but be open to constructive criticism, stay close to your family and in your relationship with God and always be honest with yourself. I LOVE YOU my sweet Alexis, I could not have asked for a better daughter. I am TRULY PROUD of who you are and cannot wait to see the amazing woman you will become! I love you thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much! Mommy
