Y’all are gonna have to bear with me.
If you were around in the fall, you might remember that I posted pictures of my kids on their first day of school.
And I apologize in advance.
But the mama in me has to go there again.
Because Friday marked the last day of the school year.
Just look at tiny little Jude. On his first day of pre-K.
Okay, well.. he is bigger.
And my little-big man relished every bit of his first year of school.
Especially his beloved teacher, Mrs. Rider. To whom he carried hand-picked flowers on several occasions.
He definitely has a way with the ladies.
Then there is Isabelle on her first day of Kindergarten…
She has learned *almost* all her letters. And is beginning to read.
We are so. ridiculously. proud. of her. She has made progress in so many ways.
And the best part? She is pretty proud of herself, too.
And Miss Sophie Lulu on her first day of 1st grade…
Who is now, not-so-surprisingly, a voracious reader.
And, semi-surprisingly, a budding social butterfly.
She is also quite convinced that she knows all there is to know. About everything.
Evidently, parents are just old. Not wise.
Dalton on his first day of 3rd grade…
Who has learned his way around a Mac.
Knows how to take movies and make documentaries.
And, whether he wants to or not, knows how to make the girls swoon.
But for now, his biggest love is football.
Which is a really, really good thing.
And Asher, on his first day of 5th grade.
Now, even taller.
At over 5’3″, he’s the tallest kid at his school.
And next year he’ll be in middle school. Ack.
His favorite part of school this year? Building and racing a solar car.
We have absolutely loved our time here. The schools are phenomenal. And the teachers care deeply about their kids. We have been abundantly blessed by the way we have been welcomed and loved on by the folks here.
And the kids are so very sad that they won’t be going back to their schools again next year.
One of the hardest parts about being a military family is having to move your kiddos every few years. To wherever the military decides you should go.
But God always manages to bless us with every new assignment. In some mighty big ways.
And with each new assignment, each move, the kids still miss what they are leaving behind.
But they are learning to look forward to the unknown. To what He is going to do. And how He is going to show up.
And that makes all the difference.
