Today was Eli's Kindergarten graduation. Can we please take a minute so that I can process that? My heavens, was I not just ranting about sleepless nights?
After a short walk across the stage, Eli was give the P.E., Reading, Math, and Habit Seven Awards. This year has been full of so much growth for him in many different area. It wasn't always easy, but I am so proud of him and everything he accomplished both academically and personally.
Nan and Grandad drove all the way from Marion for the celebration, and Eli was thrilled to see them!
After the ceremony, all the guests were invited to the cafeteria for a quick reading of "I'll Love You Forever," and of course cake and punch!
Eli wanted to ride the bus to daycare, so I didn't check him out for the day when we left. He said they cleaned, played games, ordered lunch, and had a fun day.
Jayden stayed all afternoon with him too. These boys have become such good friends, and I have a feeling we'll have picture similar to this one in about 12 years, but let's not talk about that now.
Thank you Mr. Pate for teaching, nurturing, and loving our child. It has been a year full learning on many different levels, and we are blessed that you were apart of the journey.
