Kindergarten graduations are a funny thing.  

Before I had school-age kids, I always thought any graduation other than that for seniors was sort of silly.  But then, one of my own children gets on stage and it all seems really exciting and kinda perfect:)... 

I am beaming.  Every line they say is precious.  Every quirky look they give us, we giggle. 

And all that aside, they just look so adorable.  I want to eat my kids up.

Philly graduated K-5 last night.  He officially made it to first grade:).  I am so proud of how much he has learned this year...and even more, the kind of child he is.  So lovable and soft-hearted.  

He told me earlier this week when I picked him up from school that he had won the 'Tell-on-Yourself" award.  I think it was the honesty award for his class:)...*giggle*  He is just the sweetest!  I love his prayers.  His snuggle-bug quality.  How he sleeps with 10 different animals all piled into his arms.  How he gets tears in his eyes when Niamh cries, even if she is being punished for being mean to him. And now this guy reads!  And knows numbers all the way to 100.  He has memorized so many Bible verses this year.  Learned so many new songs.  Plays soccer at recess.  New friends.  And his favorite color is officially orange, just for the record:).

I think kindergarten graduations are kind of spectacular now:).  
And my first grader--

He is pretty darn cool.

ps...the fourth grader up there, she's pretty cool, too:).

  14. Love all the pictures!! IDK why but I never realized our kids were the same age! But I am bummed, because I am hearing about all these Kindergarten graduations, and I remember I had one, but Brucey's class is NOT having one! I have no clue why. But its sort of a bummer!!

    Anyways.. congrats to Philly!! He looks so handsome, and Niamh is just stunning, she looks so much like you. ♥

  29. American school grades kind of confuse me! Here in Australia, our kids go to "Kindy" (pronounced Kin-dee, then off to Prep at a Primary School. I suppose that would be the equivalent of Grade 1 in elementary school for you guys. Either way, congrats to the graduate.

    You're children are simply adorable, and you're whole family is so photogenic :)

  38. I have told you before how beautiful I think your children are and I have to say it again! These two little imps are beautiful... inside and out... kinda like their mom. And I can say that not even really knowing you and feel very confident that I speak truly. Love reading your blog almost as much as I enjoy coloring your digis! Oh, and when I was a child, I wore my hair just like Niamh wore hers in these pics (I won't share with you how many years ago that was! LOL) xx
