Our Graduates

The last week has been very busy. We feel incredibly blessed that both of their teachers were fabulous. First, Ethan graduated from Kindergarten. He is so excited to go to first grade and get to play on the big playground AND eat lunch at school. I don't think he realizes just how long the actual school day is but hopefully he will adjust. Here are some pics from Ethan's graduation:

Getting his diploma from his teacher. She was so wonderful for Ethan. So sweet & calm. I was always amazed at how well all of the kids listened to her.

Tonight was Ryan's graduation from early intervention. He was pretty overwhelmed by all of the people invading his playground but he was very happy to receive his present from his teacher.

Ryan, with his teacher, Miss Lisa. We are so sad that Ryan won't have her a teacher anymore but he will have her for summer camp. I know I will be a crying mess on Ryan's last day of camp. She has been such a blessing to us.

It is so bittersweet. I want my babies to be babies forever but I can't wait to see the wonderful, young men they will become.

Each new stage brings new wonderful things in our kids. Really. I know what you mean bout these transitions, though. It's been hard for me to deal with Simon graduating from 8th grade. HS next - yipes!

The time goes by quickly. You have the blog to chronicle things. A big plus. I look at my girls now, and I don't have any idea when or how they grew up so much. Craziness!

Congrats to the boys!
