And we’re off!
Chat with you soon from the west coast!
Another term has drawn to a close at gymnastics so Hannah had her graduation ceremony last Saturday. She has been taking gymnastics for more than 2 years now and still really enjoys it so I’ll continue to enrol her as long as she does.
Last Thursday we celebrated Rebecca’s Grade 8 graduation. Where has the time gone? I was blessed beyond measure to be invited into the delivery room when she was born and she grabbed hold of my heart with her first cry and has held on to it since then. We share a special relationship and I love her like crazy!
Wednesday she invited me to go on a grad field trip to see The Wizard of Oz with she and her class. We had a lot of fun together shopping at The Eaton Centre in Toronto and then going to the theatre. I wasn’t sure what it would be like following 6 teens around the mall but they were awesome and we had a lot of fun together!
Thursday evening was so fun as I was now familiar with her classmates and could enjoy cheering for each of them as they crossed the stage. I’ll be honest though, my loudest cheers and heart were all for one special girl. Our Bec Bec!!
After the ceremony Hannah found her Bec Bec to give her flowers.
The evening ended (for the family anyway) with the traditional first dance with Dad but this one ended up being a family affair. So much love for one little girl!
Checking out her ice cream that was served on a bed of dry ice. Cool!
We may only have been away for 24 hours but you can see she made the best of it! Hannah and I are both excited that soon we’ll be on vacation together! Can’t wait to spend lots and lots of time with my amazing girlie and visit precious friends too!!!
Last weekend we had a great time celebrating Father’s Day! Most of the family was able to meet up at Mom and Dad’s for a time of swimming, fun and mmm…BBQ.
Even though the pool had only been open a week, it was a beautiful hot day and many of the kids went if for a swim. Hannah took a while to get in but Bec was happy to float her around until she went in. I was excited to see that Hannah can touch the bottom this year. Yay!
My ‘baby’ is a preschool graduate! Wednesday evening Grandma, Grandpa and Papa joined us at the church to celebrate Hannah’s graduation from Preschool. Nana was away for the week but we know she was there in her heart.
Entering to Pomp and Circumstance
Unfortunately it’s blurry but this is my little sweetie receiving her diploma
Hannah, I know you are more than ready to begin Junior Kindergarten in September! I’m glad your first year at school was such a wonderful success and am so thankful for all that your teachers taught you. More than that I am thankful that they helped you fall deeper in love with Jesus! You are a blessing sweetie and Mommy loves you more than she can express! xoxo
