The Walk of Fame

Well, I can hardly believe it but the school year has ended and summer has officially arrived here in Georgia!!  Per usual, we took our last day of school pics, had our Walk of Fame, and indulged in a fantastic last day of school snack.

Whit took pre-K by storm and is beyond ready for Kindergarten.  (As for his Mommy, well that’s another story…)  We were so very proud of ALL of his accomplishments this year and celebrated them properly with his own very FIRST Walk of Fame!! 


During pre-K, Whit…
played on the fall championship baseball team
made new friends
learned to add & subtract
started reading
swam like a fish
played tennis
showed great handwriting

As for John, he totally rocked second grade.  There wasn’t a challenge he wasn’t eager to conquer.  He is growing into such a handsome, honest and bright young man and had his longest Walk of Fame yet!!


In second grade, John…
took 1st place in the science fair
played on BOTH the 8U & 10U tennis teams
was the 1st & 2nd grade chess champion for the 3rd straight semester
founded football club
made the baseball all star team
achieved perfect attendance
made new friends
had his first communion
brought home perfect math scores every.single.week
played 3rd base on the #1 baseball team in the regular season
voted winner of the sportsmanship award by his teammates
won 2nd place in the school marathon

After dousing John with silly string as he exited the school bus for the last time as a second grader, the littles proudly made their Walk of Fame!

Since this was the first year doing TWO walks, I set one up on each side of the driveway.  Our place was overflowing with accomplishments today, that’s for SURE!  Honey had to make a last-minute-before-work run to Home Depot for more yard stakes, for crying out loud!!!

This year’s last day of school snack was a Phineas and Ferb themed Ice Cream Sundae-inator bar!!!

While the littles indulged in their sugary treat, we made our summer bucket list in a take from the Phineas and Ferb theme song…  “There’s 74 days of summer vacation and school comes along just to end it.  So the annual problem for our generation is finding a good way to spend it.  Like maybe…”

“Stick with us ‘cause JOHN and WHIT are gonna do it ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Summer is HERE and it’s bound to be GREAT!!!

PS. As I sit here marveling at the two biggest blessings in my life, a sweet reader has reached out to me for a prayer request for a family from her hometown that lost their dear five year old little to brain cancer just days ago.   I couldn’t not share his story and ask you, too, to keep Ben and his family in your thoughts.  You can read his story here.

    And, thanks for passing along the request for prayer. Will be praying and thinking about that precious boy and his family who I know are greatly mourning their loss.
