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

Last day of Pre-K

Sam's last day of pre-k is now here. I've been talking about it for awhile and now I guess I really officially do have a Kindergartner. I am so proud of all that he has learned this year. When he started he had NO interest at all in writing,drawing,coloring etc........ Now he can write all of his letters so good, knows all the sounds, and can recognize all of them as well. He's doing pretty darn good reading 3 and 4 letter words too. Loves to draw and color now. He learned so many bible verses and stories of the bible this year and I pray the God will just hide them in his little heart and he will always have them there! Every time I talked to his teacher Mrs. Tomica she always bragged on him so much and always reassured me that he was so ready for K and was going to do great! Best Beginnings was great and he had great Christian teachers who loved and cared for him and that made me feel so comfortable! He has enjoyed this school year so much and was such a little social butterfly. I think since their aren't any siblings at home or any other small children in our family for that matter it makes him love his time at school with other kids even more. He has made such great buddies this year and is having a hard time understanding why he wont be seeing them anymore. I promised that we will try to stay in touch with his best buddies this summer and he will do fine making new friends in K next year at Bethlehem Christian Academy.
Here are few pics from this morning getting ready for his last day of school.
We love you Sam and are so very proud of the big boy you are becoming. But you will always be my little baby! Last night you told me at bedtime that "even when you get to be a big boy you're still gonna be my baby"...... I promise I will remind you of that someday!

Getting up early one last day and eating breakfast........ now we get to sleep in!!!!

Hey Jen, It's Nikki (Emilea's sister)... Geez, it's soooo hard to believe that your baby is getting ready to start K. I remember making baby shower invites :-)
Hope y'all have a great summer!
