Big update today! Gabriel graduated from kindergarten yesterday and it was a sight! There were so many adorable kids dressed up and smiling, it was a neat thing to be a part of. Unfortunately I was a little late because I was coming from work and I missed the opening song. I won’t go into the regret I have over that but let’s just say it’s something I probably won’t get over as a parent. He didn’t know I missed the song, but I knew….and it was so important. They did sign language to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” and apparently there wasn’t a dry eye in the church! I missed it though. I couldn’t sleep last night as I wrestled with the fact that is a moment that is gone forever and I wasn’t there to see my son do it. He had been practicing that for weeks and would only show me a few signs because it was supposed to be a “secret surprise”. I knew I should’ve taken the day off! I won’t go into that though. Anyway, it’s on video (which isn’t the same) but at least it’s captured and we can look back and watch it together. I wanted to post photos there was something wrong with our flash and they didn’t turn out very well. Ughhh!! Thankfully the camcorder was working again! In the end the day was wonderful and he’s so proud of his diploma and all he’s learned this year. Way to go Gabe!:)
On giving in: I broke down and bought Crocs for the boys! I’m sure my mother-in-law will cringe at the thought, she hates those things and has tried to convince me to save my money. Lol.:) I ordered a pair for Grant a few weeks ago and Gabriel got his earlier this week. After a few days though, they are a hit! Well worth the money! Very comfortable and easy to slip on so thumb’s up at our house for sure.
On getting older: This weekend Jim and I will celebrate our 7 year anniversary. I was going back through our wedding album and had to laugh at how young we look! Granted, we WERE young (22 and 24) but it’s funny to see how we’ve changed. Here is one photo for example. We just picked up our marriage license in Crawford country, GA (it was a Friday). Happy anniversary Jaime!
