It's Graduation Time

Well, the end of May is here - which means school is out. Yes, we are officially done with school as of this past week. It has been a great year for both girls but we are sure glad to be done. I will definitely miss my morning breaks and "free time" but we are all looking forward to the fun and freedom of summer.

My sweet little Paloma was first up to "graduate" from her first year of preschool. All of the kids and teachers work hard to put together a nice end of year program for the parents. They sing songs, recite Bible versus, and play instruments. I totally remember sitting there watching Mattea when she was 4 having her end of the year program in Mrs. Wiseman's class. And now here we are watching Paloma. De ja vu!

Here is Paloma and her very best friend Jessie. She has clung to this girl since the day she started school. It is really very sweet to have watched. Luckily, they will get to be in the same class next year.

As soon as Paloma finished, we headed upstairs to watch my little Matty graduate from The Children's Academy where she has been going to school for the past 3 years. She is now officially off to 1st grade. How scary is that?

The teacher has done an amazing job with these kids and they put on a great program for us. Their knowledge radiated from them along with their hear for Christ. Here is a final picture with one of her very good friends Ella. Unfortunately, these girls will not be going to school together next year, but we hope to remain good friends despite of of the circumstances.

My little girl who looks much too grown up.

And of course, a few shots with mom and dad to tuck away in the scrapbook. As I always say, I was a bit sad to see another ending occur, but am very excited to see what God does with my girls in the upcoming year. It will definitely be a year of change for all of us but we are ready to tackle all that comes our way. Congratulations girls. Mom and dad love you very much!
