Happy 12th Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Josiah!!  His birthday involved going out for supper with mom and dad and going to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier with friends from MC and their dad's.  So proud of the young man God is creating him to be, my prayer for him is that he would continue following hard after God's desires for his life!!

Josiah's Band Concert

Josiah was in band this year and he played the trombone (just like his dear old mom did).  He enjoyed it and actually received a scholarship to attend the International Music Camp located in the Peace Gardens this summer.  Here's a pic of him and his cousin Emma who is also in his grade and in the same band, but she plays trumpet.  I think more band concerts are in our future!

Graduation Videos

For the grandparents, here are some videos of the extreme cuteness that can only be found at Kindergarten Graduation!

My Baby Graduated!

Wowzers!!  I can't believe my 'baby' graduated from Kindergarten this year.  It's been a year of ups and downs and lots of transitions as we loved on 4 different kids through foster care this school year.  Seth had a few days that were harder, but overall he rose to the challenge of school this year and we are so proud of him!  He was certain he knew everyone in the school and they all knew him...honestly, with his personality I wouldn't be surprised.  It was rare that I walked with him through school and he didn't get multiple greetings.  Thank you Mrs. Gehrke for being a phenomenal Kindergarten teacher for both Alayna & Seth!!  As we transition out of kindergarten and look ahead to first grade...he is excited to ride the bus with Alayna next year and attend the same school as her.  I'm excited for them to be together also!!
