I think I'll be ready. I think. I know you will be ready. You take every new challenge with such zest, willingness and full throttle energy I must wonder if Kindergarten is ready for you.

I'd be all about the food too.
You have even been doing your own version of homework on your own initiative.
I am also in awe of your personality. You are confident, outgoing and friendly. Thankfully, you are not a moody girl, generally you are upbeat and cheerful, quick to laugh and silly-it-up.
