The Graduates

Isn't it funny how life just keeps going even if your blog doesn't?
One of the things we've been up to is graduations...

Joshua "graduated" from preschool! He sure made some good buddies and had lots of fun in our preschool co-op this year. Since Josh is still four, he'll be starting Kindergarten next year. Luckily, he doesn't seem to mind that all his pals are starting school without him. It makes sense to him that you have to be five to go to school...and he's not five yet. He and I are going to have a grand time together this year.Jacob "graduated" from Kindergarten. (Aren't those caps adorable?)As they came up to the stage one by one to get their certificates, the teacher asked them what they want to be when they grow up. My boy's answer was "A hero." It brought a tear to my eye, even though I know he literally wants to wear a cape and run around rescuing people. To me, he already is a hero.
