School’s OUT!

May 22, 2009

It’s been a good school year! Julian successfully finished 3rd grade and will move on to the 4th grade next year. Jaden finished the Mother’s Day Out program and will head off to Kindergarten in the Fall. Evely also finished her Mother’s Day Out program and will have one more year of getting ready for school there.

The MDO program has a graduation ceremony and singing program for parents at the end of the year. This year was extra special because of the graduate in our home – Jaden. It was a bittersweet moment watching him walk across the stage and get his little diploma. It seemed to be a marking moment of my little boy growing up. No longer a baby or toddler, he’s fully kid. He now his his own ideas, humor, plans, likes and dislikes. He’s stubborn but very sweet. He has a heart that leans toward God and I love that about him. He asks great questions and likes to laugh. He can burp extremely loud and loves candy, sugar, sweets and pop. He hates veggies. I still catch him sleeping with his “green blanket” on occasion. He’s an all around GREAT kid! So much fun. I will greatly miss him when he is off to kindergarten every day – all day. Yup! It’s sad.

So here are some pics of the kiddos on the last day of MDO.


Evely in her new dress with her adorable new frog purse. It was loaded with a bunny rabbit and a plastic carrot.

Jaden receiving his diploma. They ask them in the microphone what they want to be when they grow up and he proudly said “A SPY!”

I love this picture! Only a boy would do that during graduation.


I’m looking forward to Summer!

  1. I can’t believe Jaden is ready for kindergarten…or that my Channy is going to FIRST grade! Didn’t we just have these little boys yesterday? We miss you guys so much! You are still invited to the “Celebration At The Station” event tomorrow night (6:00 pm @ Union Station). This was SO MUCH fun last year, so we decided to make it a yearly tradition in our family. If you can’t make it to that maybe we could do something Monday? Jonathan’s birthday is Tuesday, so I was thinking of inviting some friends over on Monday. Love you guys!

  2. Anjelia misses seeing Jaden! I will miss MDO next year. It’s a strange feeling to be finished with that part of my life. A new season awaits me and I do look forward to whatever the future holds.
