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!!
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!!
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!!!
And, at the very end, they crashed through our annual Welcome to Summer banner!!!
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.
