First Day of Fourth Grade

Matthew, Mrs. Smith, and Lucas.  
I'm interrupting our Disney trip recap with a short post of the first day of school.  Matthew and Lucas are getting ready to head to their first day of fourth grade.  This means the last year they will be in their elementary school building before heading to the intermediate school next year.  Wow!

Matthew ready for fourth grade.
I always am so emotional the first few days leading up to and the first day of school.  I just can't fathom them growing up.  I remember clearly their first day of first grade.  I remember Matthew coming home telling me his teacher had read the Kissing Hand, and how he wanted me to kiss his hand before he went to school each day.  That lasted for about a week or so :).  But nonetheless, they've grown up and have moved through the grades, and now fourth grade faces us. 

My little buddies, my 4 lb 14 oz and 5 lb 14 oz guys have grown up to fourth graders.  Wow!  I better stop writing, because I'm starting to cry :). 

Lucas ready for fourth grade.

I hope you guys know how much I love you.  I am so excited to see you continue to grow and change into the awesome young men that God will make you.  I pray each day that you will be a blessing and a witness to others while at school.  Remember, God is always with you!
