I love it when the beginning and end of the school year rolls around, because that means that my news feeds are usually flooded with all of my friends’ kiddos either starting up or finishing their school year, looking totally adorable. One of my favorites is always the side-by-side of the first day and last day, since I think it’s so fun to see how much kids can change in just a short amount of time.
I knew that my Lucas had grown up quite a bit this past school year, but I was absolutely shocked to see just how MUCH he changed between now and last September…
I still can’t get over it. He was such a baaaaaaby when he started! And now he’s basically off to college.
So yes, he’s getting way too big on me, but he had an adorable little moving up ceremony at his preschool yesterday morning.
I’m pretty sure that picture above is when Lucas noticed that my mother-in-law and my parents were all able to make it to see him “graduate.” It was so cute…all of the kids were sitting quietly and then you hear Lucas yelling “Hi Nan Nan! Hiiii PAPA!!!”
We got to hear all about a typical day at preschool, complete with all of the songs they usually sing, and then they all went back to grab their hats so they could get their certificates.
I totally told myself I wasn’t going to cry, but who was I kidding. Especially when his teacher started playing “That’s What Friends Are For”…
What can I say? I’m a total sap and I 100% get it from my mom. ; )
Congratulations to the class of 2016-2017! Next year, we’ll be off to the 4 year old class!
We’re just so proud of this little (big) guy. Sure, he drives us absolutely bananas sometimes, but man…he is smart (too smart for his own good sometimes), he is funny, and he has a personality that can light up a room.
Congratulations, my sweet Lucas! You have big things coming for you some day. I just know it <3
