Where did the school year go?

My goodness!  How did we already get to the end of the school year?  I know it has been awhile since I've posted, but it has been pretty busy during the spring.  Hopefully, the summer break will allow me to post more regularly.

At the end of the school year, the teachers give each elementary student a Christian Character Award.  It is a very sweet moment to hear about your child through a teacher's eyes.  Jack received the Loving Award.  His verse was "Unselfishly meeting the needs of others" John 15:12.  I can't tell you what it feels like to have someone who has spent 8 hours a day for the past 31 weeks tell you that your child is unselfish and meets the needs of others.  It was almost too overwhelming.

Then, Mrs. Pearle used the letters in his name to describe Jack.  J is for Jovial, A is for Appreciative.  C is for Capable and K is for Kind.  She said he ALWAYS said "Yes ma'am" to her and did whatever she said.  I am so proud of him!

Jack is my very tenderhearted kid.  He cried when the class was over because he knew that it was Mrs. Pearle's last day as she had surgery the following day.  I snapped this picture of the two of them after the award ceremony:

He wasn't excited about moving up to 3rd grade, but he did say it was possible he may love his 3rd grade teacher more than Mrs. Pearle.  I'll be honest.  I don't know if that is possible.  I'm not sure our family can love any teacher more than Mrs. Pearle.

Luke received the Fruit of the Spirit award for Joyfulness.  Well, isn't that the truth!  I don't know another kid who moves around as much as he does humming a song and laughing at everything that is going on.  He is definitely a free spirit which is one of the things I love most about him.  He dresses up in silly costumes.  Yesterday, he was a skeleton pirate:

Below are a few pictures from his Pre-K class:

Halloween 2010

Tonight was a fun night for the boys considering it was a Sunday night Halloween. We spent a good part of the evening at our church's Trunk or Treat event. This was the first year in quite a while that Aaron and I didn't have a trunk. Ironically enough, I ended up helping put it together and ran the cupcake walk while Aaron ran the putting green and bowling. We were both pretty tired by the end of it.

Aaron ended up taking the boys down the street right by our church while I finished cleaning up. The boys were so excited to go through a "home"made haunted house. I was surprised it didn't scare them, but they really loved it. So much they had to call both sets of grandparents to tell them all about it. Luke's words were "it was so awesome!!"

Luke as "bones" AKA a skeleton

Pretty sure the best picture ever taken of Luke...and he is in a Halloween costume.

Silly picture time
