Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta - Awwww , They Grow Up Too Quickly .... and GORGEOUS GOWN Giveaway Link ..

It's Friday and it's a Fiesta !! At least it is, thanks to Candid Carrie ! :-)



My youngest grandson, Xavier, proudly showing off his new school uniform and 'Speed Racer' shoes !

He starts at RUSSLEY School, in two weeks, when he turns a grownup 5.

In New Zealand, kids start school on their fifth birthday, irrespective of where that birthday falls in the school year. He will be starting school, about a month or so, before the year ends. The school year , over there, runs from February through to December.

Judging by the photos, I suspect that he is pretty excited, wouldn't you say ? :-)

Congratulations on starting school, Xavier. You have a whole, new and exciting world ahead of you !!!


Isn't this the most gorgeous gown that you've ever seen ???

Can't you just imagine a little girl proudly wearing it on Halloween?

Pop over to KATHLEEN'S
and enter her giveaway to win this FABULOUS gown. You'll need to be quick as it ends today. I've been sick, so hence the delay in posting the link and info. :-(

Her site itself is worth visiting and bookmarking for future visits, especially if you love sewing, like I do :-)

That dress is just amazing. I can't imagine a kindergartner in that - and I love all the pictures she took of her daughter wearing it. If it was in my kids size, I'd so be entering the contest...

And that is so neat that New Zealand has you start school when you turn five. Is it difficult to get adjusted...or do they easily meld right in?

That is interesting how the kids start school at age 5. This little guy looks very excited, indeed.

Found you on Candid Carrie.

I had no idea that NZ did that - start school when you're 5, no matter. That's really interesting. Doesn't that drive teachers batty???
