{Last day of Pre-K}

Mason started his first day of Pre-K on August 18th {post here} and today, May 22nd will be his very last. It's so, so bittersweet. I just don't know any other word to describe it. The end of an era and the beginning of a new. I am so sad to leave behind this amazing school, the awesome teachers and all of Mason's friends he has made there. He will not be going to Kindergarten with any of his friends in his class. Most of them live on the other side of the highway and everyone is in different school districts.  We have vowed to summer play-dates with his best buddies and I plan to keep my part of that vow. I know how much his friends mean to him. And we will have to go back and visit everyone at this school because they are just awesome and mean so much to us. I will never have the words to accurately describe how thankful I am for his school and his teachers and the impact they have made on Mason's life. They have prepared him for all of his school days to come. Nathan and I both feel like Mason will be ahead of the game when he starts Kindergarten and I can't tell you how good that feels! He's writing, spelling and even doing basic math! Blows my mind. I would bet my right arm that I wasn't doing math at only 4 years old!! 

I can't even begin to tell you how proud you make your Daddy and I. It has been the biggest blessing to watch you grow over the last year. You amaze us every single day. Your daddy and I just look at each other and smile from the inside out every time you speak. We don't even have to say a word because we both know that we are feeling the same exact thing. And quite honestly, there just are no words. It's indescribable. You are an amazing little guy with the kindest and funniest little spirit. You are full of personality and character and we just can't believe you are ours. You are more than we could have ever dreamed of, Mason. You fill our hearts with so much love and joy and we hope you know how happy you make us. Tonight you will graduate from Pre-K.  We can't believe it. You are so smart and have worked so hard all year to learn and have exceeded any expectations we had. We are incredibly proud of you, son. And just remember that tonight when your Mama is a weepy mess that it's all tears of love and joy. Yes, there is some sad mixed in because you are growing too incredibly fast. But, it will be mostly tears of pride and happy. For I know that the next time I blink you will be wearing a cap and gown for your high school graduation...then college...and then...ahhh, can't even think about it! 

I love you to Heaven and back a million times!

  2. Oh my goodness, so bittersweet. Congratulations to your little preschool grad! And, I can say with utmost certainty that I was not doing math at age 4 (shoot, I try to avoid math at all costs, all these years later).
