Five Pictures

Not a day goes by that, while marveling over the beautiful boys that inhabit my home and hold my heart, I don’t wonder (like any other mama out there) where DOES the time go?  It seems like just days ago that we welcomed our first miracle into our lives.  And, here we are, five years later, with a smart, funny, strong willed, kind, handsome and rambunctious son preparing for the end of his pre-K school year.  When John’s sweet teacher requested that we send in five pictures for the graduation slide show, I spent hours pouring through the thousands that document every stage and age of his precious life thus far.  I smiled at many, laughed at some and cried at a few – I love this child so much that it hurts.  So, without further ado, come along for my (extremely abbreviated) trip down memory lane…

PS. John’s sweet teacher, Ms. L, recently had a major surgery and we miss her so much at school.  Please join us in praying for a speedy recovery.
