It sure is funny how time passes by. I will be attending the graduation ceremonies with two of my boys this week. They are growing all so fast. My youngest is graduating from kindergarten and he is so excited about starting first grade in the fall. He had an awesome teacher that brought so much creativity and fun into his learning; I couldn’t have wished for him a better teacher. He loves writing and drawing pictures that matches his little stories. He has gone through more than a few doodle pads at homes.
My middle guy isn’t having a ceremony, but he is so proud of himself knowing that he will be entering the junior high this fall. Already he is thinking about what sport teams he want to try out for. He is so athletic and enjoys so many sports, but I think he narrowed it down to football and basketball, leaning towards football as his top choice. He has ADHD, but shows so much determination in whatever he does.
Last but not least, my oldest will be graduating from the eighth grade, going on to high school when classes resume in the fall. This will be quite a change for him as he has special needs, mild autism being one of them. He really is maturing well, and becoming more and more independent, but still my hardest struggles with him right know remains to be practicing good hygiene. He doesn’t like my help as he likes to do everything on his on, but as a growing boy and going through puberty I have to force my help on him. On many occasions even after a shower he would be ready to leave the home smelling like onions, if I didn’t intervene. He is getting better and with time shall do better with this, I know. I am so grateful for the passionate and caring staff that has been working with him as he transitions into high school. He is very into puzzles and has a great sense of humor.
I’m looking forward to this week, I’m so proud of them all! We were all just giggling while looking through some of our older photo albums. They could barely recognize who was who before they started growing so rapidly. Oh the joys of life and parenting!
