So Part II brings us to Scotty's field day. A bright and sunny day it was, just like these kids. Since this day, we've celebrated two graduations in our family- our daughter from 3 Morning PreK, and our son from Kindergarten. These are bittersweet events for me. As I look upon the faces in the images below, and as I look at the faces of my sweet, precious children, I know that the days are going too fast. How can my oldest be going into first grade already? How is this happening? I'm trying to accept that the days are flying, and that I need to just hold on tight and enjoy every single moment of this crazy ride. And so I celebrate all these amazing little children, boys and girls who have touched the hearts and lives of my own children, and who I hope will remain part of their lives for many many many crazy days to come.
Happy graduation to you all!
My son, Scotty (center) and his best friends, Nathaniel, Billy, and Akshay. These 4 are inseparable and we moms like it that way. What awesome boys!
Cate, here, is a wonderfully sweet little girl. She's a little on the shy side, but to be sure, she is loved a ton by all of her classmates (and their moms too!).
Amaya and her mom, Natalie. You can see where Amaya gets her beautiful hair and sweet smile!
Ah, Carly, Carly, Carly... this girl is fun fun fun all wrapped up in the cutest little face!
Elena is another of Scotty's classmates. She always has a smile for me and for anyone else. Everyone adores her (and with good reason!).
Kaitlyn! This is Scotty's teacher's daughter, a couple of years older than our KG crew, but always around to help them... and to offer a smile to the annoying mom with the camera!
Lilly just became a big sister and is doing such an awesome job with it. This little girl is a total sweetheart, full of love for her parents, her little brother, her friends, and the whole world!
And this is my little sweetheart, Brady, and one of her best best buds, Landon. I've never known anyone to "get" Brady like Landon. They are truly 2 peas in a pod. Love you guys!
To the parents of the amazing kids in these images, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for raising such awesome kids, thank you for sharing those kids with my kids, and thank you for being an example and friend to me. I am constantly overwhelmed with all the blessings God has showered over my life, and the little faces in this post are just a few of them.
Have a great summer everyone! Meet you at the park!
