We don't do a graduation from preschool at UBC, we do a Farewell to Fours. They sing some sweet songs and this year received a medal around their necks and then the sappy but beautiful power point of pictures from the year. I imagined myself crying through the whole thing, but I did pretty well, until... my husband prayed a blessing over the kids. Lost it! Just hearing the man I love praying for the sweet ones to have courage, strength, and protection as they grow and claiming the promises that God has for them was more than I could take. And then the power point started, so I cried through part of that. But then I got it together.
The past four years have gone by in a flash. I was looking at pictures and videos of him today and I just can't believe it has gone so fast. He is so funny, smart, and such a leader. At our parent teacher conference his teachers said he will either be a CEO or teacher when he grows up and they would love for me to find them in 20 years and tell them where he is. He'll be 5 in August and I constantly have people ask me if I'm holding him back and waiting a year. Have you met my child? He's so ready, I guess from having two big brothers to keep up with. And he's so excited to go! I know he'll be like the other two and just walk right in without looking back. And I may or may not cry when w drop him off. Who am I kidding. Its not if I'll cry, its can I hold it back until I get in the car.
Here are some of my favorite pictures I found today. There are too many to post, he's such a cutie!
