Ann marie - these are for you! and everyone else can enjoy them too...
Jadon and two of his best buds graduating from kindergarten. Don't they look like little high schoolers! I just can't believe how old he is getting.
You know when the house gets too quiet and you wonder what "they" are up to? This is where I found kyle. This is the boys art table in the play room. A coveted area by kyle b/c he is not yet allowed free reign over the marker or crayon bucket! So this is where I found him the other morning!
Jack - being a dragon at the pool. If you look closely ...his goggles are upside down. I LOVE IT! Every night I make up a story for jack before he goes to bed and it is always about a dragon named jack and his adventures. Jack always says "mommy, i'm not a jack dragon I'm a jack jack". He also makes me pray for no monster, aliens or emergencies every night before he falls asleep! too funny. he gets the emergency thing b/c when jack shared a room with jadon I would say before I left and closed the door, "no getting out of bed" and Jadon - mr. prepared... would say - "what if I'm worried about monsters or there is an emergency". So now jack thinks emergencies are the creatures that can come in his room at night! IMAGINATION is jack's middle name!
This is Kyle getting his first hair cut. He was so excited about the sucker that he kept opening his mouth wide to get more. Not realizing that you had to close your mouth down to really taste it. He finally got the hang of it! and if you can see jack in the back ground - you will notice that he is wearing orange and has whiskers drawn in marker on his face. He wanted to be a tiger that day....
Kyle and Daddy after a breathing treatment.
Kyle on the phone during a breathing treatment. These were about 2 weeks of breathing treatments every 4 hours and then every 6 hours after being in the hospital with a collapsed lung and a bit of pneumonia. He is all better now.
Jadon in the middle of his graduation performance! One of the directors wrote a poem about each of the kids - jadon's talk about him being their leader... after it was over you could see jadon whispering down the line "bow... guys... bow... take a bow... it's over...." too cute! what a leader!
This picture just makes me smile - it gives me hope - not hope that kyle will be okay - kyle is so much more than okay - but just hope - the kind that moves us forward to tomorrow and then some - hope that allows us to pray, to care to worship, to love to teach... HOPE - and I pray that one day b/c of this picture in my mind I will pass hope to others. These three boys, beautiful and perfect, amazing - love them so much! (uh... and if you didn't notice - jack picked his clothes - a button up white shirt like jadon, and jean shorts rolled up 3 times.... nice.)
