Ashtyn's Kindergarten Graduation

Ashtyn had a wonderful first year of school. She has changed so much in these past 9 months! It is unbelievable that she will be in 1st grade when school starts back. We have been blessed with the most wonderful teacher and teacher's aide, not to mention an incredible God-loving school. I could not have asked for anything more! 

I have to brag on her and share that she was the only student not to lose a stick all year long! (If you don't know what that means, just ask me sometime) Also, they have different leaders each week for example, line leader, door holder, etc. A few weeks ago the teacher let Ashtyn choose which leader that she wanted to be and she chose prayer helper. That helper gets to be the one who prays for the class and at lunch time. She has really come out of her shell. I mentioned earlier that she had a solo and a speaking part in her school musical. Can you believe that? 
She wants to be the best at everything that she does. Right now she is really into dancing, singing and she loves to draw and color. We have her dance receital coming up in 2 weeks, which she is very excited about. Also she was invited to be in the mini company class next year. That is an invitation only, competitive/performance team at her dance studio. What an honor (at 6 yrs. old)! At home, she is a great helper. She still loves to help with Eisley. It will be fun to see what thi next year brings!

Josiah's graduation

This was Josiah's big night. I was a bit nervous of how he would do seeing that right before we left the house he let me know that he really did not want to "do graduation tonight". I told him how this was HIS special night and that he could even pick where we went for dinner afterwards, just like Ashtyn had done the year before when she graduated from Pre-K. I was so proud when he walked into the sanctuary and up on that stage. He didn't sing the songs, but he was up there! He was however, yawning and rubbing his eyes most of the time :). But at least he wasn't sticking his tongue out and licking his lips like one little boy down the line!

I think Josiah has come such a long way this year. He started off never wanting to go to school and was very quite when he was there. He really wasn't even interested in learning anything (quite the opposite of Ashtyn). There were many days that I had to drag him into the room! But then he got to really love it and made a lot of great friends! He even enjoyed doing his homework which consisted of practicing writing his letters. (I think he did a great job!) He loves to show us what he has learned at school. And I love to see his face light up as he shows us.

He is growing up! And he is such a sweetheart! He is so kind and compassionate. I wish that you could see the way he takes care of Isaiah when they are together. He is a joy! And I am thankful that I will have him home 2 days a week next year since he will be going to Pre-K again next year, but will be at a different school. He will be at Lake Country Christian School
with Ashtyn.
