the graduate

wes donned the cap and gown on tuesday, listened to a very brief commencement speech, sang some songs, danced a dance, walked across the stage, got his diploma, and graduated kindergarten!  this little dude has come a long, long way in one year's time.  i attribute that to his sweet teacher, mrs. williams.  at the beginning of the year, he couldn't even hold a pencil correctly.  (i blame myself for that, but he always hated to color, and so he never ever had a crayon in his hand!!  why would i force the kid to sit down and color when he just wanted to go outside?!?)  now he can write like a champ, he loves to draw, and he can read!!   what?!?!  kindergarten teachers need a raise!!!  :)

little brother gave him some love before we left the house!

these next pictures are surreal to me!  it seems like yesterday i was posing with all my friends just like this before high school graduation.  and now, my kids are closer to high school graduation than i am!  what happened here???
