The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Sam's end of the year pre-K program at Best Beginnings

Tonight was finally the night Sam has been waiting for. He and his classmates have been practicing for about 6 weeks every day at school and tonight he finally got to show us all the songs he had learned. He usually still takes a nap but today he layed there and layed there and finally he said "mom I just cant sleep, Im too excited about tonight". I thought, this is really a big deal to him, I mean of course it is too me, but to him, he just was so proud of his self tonight. All of the kids were, it was so cute. The title of the program was "Preschools Greatest Hits" Some of the songs they sang were......Sing,Shout,Praise; Tootie Ta(which was just too cute); Whose side are you leaning on; My mother is a baker; Hokey Pokey;
Happy all the time; You've got a friend in me..... they worked really hard and did such a great job! After their songs they were awarded with their certificates. Uh-oh this officially means we have a kindergartner:( Next everyone gathered in the fellowship hall for cake and ice cream. Sam had such a great time, did such a great job, and we are so proud of him. Great Memories were made tonight and I know this is just the beginning!!

On another note seriously is it ever gonna stop raining???? We are never gonna get another t-ball game in it seems!! But after the rain stops we'll be thankful for all the green grass, trees, and beautiful flowers!

Enjoy the pics, wish they had turned out a little better but the lighting was bad and I was a little to far away, but they are good enough for me!

Sam with that fake smile... gotta love him though!
almost time for the show
