Goodbye First Grade, Hello Tears....

Joseph is ready for the summer!!!!

Joseph looking cool and dapper as he leaves the house for his last day of first grade...

Joseph's morning tradition....kissing Presley goodbye as she cries for him not to leave...

I had to include this pic...this was Joseph's first day of First Grade......look how much they have grown in one year!!!

Well, today was the last day of First Grade for Joseph. I knew this was coming, I mean I have had all year to prepare for this day. However, nothing could stop the tears as I walked him into his classroom taking "last day" pictures of him. His teacher MUST think that I am the weepiest whino mom in the world. It just does not seem possible that my baby boy will be a SECOND 2 months!! "Second grader" just sounds so is this possible?? Wasn't it just yesterday he was playing with his Thomas The Train toys and making choo choo sounds?? Please tell me that time will slow down a bit, it just seems to go by too fast for me these days.

I am so proud of you Joseph. Your mommy and daddy love you so much and we pray that you will continue to do your best in school and in life. Your kind heart and compassionate ways make you one special and unique little boy. Your life verse seems to be so fitting for this day...."Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight."

We love you, Prince.

You're such a great, Mommy!!!! I have always loved that about you. So attentive, so sweet a very good role model for me!
Joseph is very "growny" - he seems 8 already and Audrey seems 7. We'll hold back the tears together -ok?!!!
Can't wait to hear about Orlando!!!!!! :) And, even better to see you guys (really soon, hopefully)!!
Hugs and love,
