Pomp and Circumstance

2005 scrapbook152I can’t believe the school year is over all ready.  More than that I can’t believe my little guy is going to be a kindergartener next fall.  Where did the time go?  It truly seems like it wasn’t that long ago when he was taking his first steps.  And now he’ll be stepping across the stage…ready to commence a new stage of life.

He is no longer a preschooler.

I’m so proud of him.  I love the way his little mind works, always processing, always questioning.  He’s got his Daddy’s logical brain.   I look forward to watching him continue to grow and develop through the years.  And yet, I wish I could freeze time right now, right where he is.  I love that he still loves to snuggle.  And I dread the day when he doesn’t want to curl up on my lap on the couch anymore.

There’s going to be a ceremony and performance at his school this morning.  He’s been talking about it all week.  I can’t wait to see him sing his songs with his classmates.  He told me tonight he gets to wear a special vest and hat too.  I’ll be bringing my tissues.

Afterwards there’s going to be celebration for the families.  So, I made these little grad caps for the picnic.


They were super easy to make and I think they’ll provide a cute touch to the festivities.

  5. those are so cute! congratulations on his moving on that's so exciting and sad. Growing up is like that. I remember my mother cried the summer after my 7th grade year because I was going into 8th grade so in a year I'd be starting high school. I used to think that was really weird.
