busy, busy day...

(((warning: long email with lots of pictures!)))

yesterday was a happy day,
sad day,
some tears where shed,
we felt lots of love,
throw in some tantrums (a day without one just wouldn't be normal - ha)

it started at 10:45 when kaden graduated from pre-k.
we went to his school & they sang a couple of cute songs they had learned.
they even had little hats & thru them up in the air after getting their little diplomas

(((a few fits in the afternoon!)))

that night was church, but it wasn't like any other wednesday. it was our last :(
they planned a great service - two songs were created in chad's honor - a funny song of events that have happened while being here the last five years & a rap.  
really good stuff!!!

then it was our turn - to be up in front of people AND holding a microphone is not my thing. but i knew i needed to. i was nervous, shaking from being so nervous, & then the sound booth guy started playing music & i lost it - big tears. another thing i hate is too cry in front of people. so 3 things i hate the most i did last night! ha

(((the first two pictures are the boys with their friends))) 
crazy MS boys!

(((alicia {the jean girl} she always noticed when chad & i had a new pair of jeans on & knew what brand they were - she is all into fashion)))
(((smart boy going to PENN in the fall)))

(((crazy, crazy girl but love her much, much)))
(((3 of the nicest people you will ever meet)))

gospel & chad (((the guy who wrote a GREAT rap about chadallic)))
(((i wasn't ready for the picture to be taken... can you tell?!?!)))

What great have the most adorable family!

I remember leaving our youth kids and it was so bittersweet. Now they're getting married and having babies and REALLY making me feel all old :)

Praying your transition goes as smoothly as possible...tantrums and all ;)

Awwww - I know how sad, scary, exciting and overwhelming it can be to leave behind what is comfortable and familiar to start all over again. I will be praying for you guys.

It looks like it was a wonderful time. All of it. My 2 yr old's last day of Mothers Day Out was Wednesday and they aren't re-opening in the fall. He had an amazing teacher, but so many good things are still to come. :)

I hope everything is transitioning smoothly. Thank goodness kids recover quickly :)
