last day of kindergarten.
































Can you believe I have a first grader now!
We visited my oldest at his last day of school ice cream party. It was so much fun to see him being a student! A real student! He was stationed at a table full of girls, and seemed to love it. He didn't seem to embarrassed to have us there and I discreetly snapped some photos of the interaction to use as proof that he cohorted with females when he hits his awkward teen years. Only 7 more years until we find ourselves in the thick of those!
No more kindergarten baby. We've got a big man on campus who is confident and knows where to go, what he wants, and how to get it. We've got a great reader, who is dappling in chapter books, a great math whiz who already can do long multiplication (it takes him a while, but he can!), an outgoing athlete, and a caring little person who is willing to help others along the way. I am so glad I am his mom. I am so proud of my boy.

How exciting!!! The speed at which these kids grow astounds me. Can you believe I won't have any at home in a couple months?? What an awesome young man you have on your hands!

Wow, I realize more and more how fast time goes now that I have my own little one. Josh will love first grade...it's the best grade if I do say so myself. I'm not biased or anything being a 1st grade teacher. :)
