How is it possible...

that I officially have a first grader?? 

Last Thursday Kaden graduated from Kindergarten and we couldn't be more proud of our oldest boy!

Walking in...so serious

We even caught a rare moment on camera...Kaden actually sang AND did a few of the motions during their little concert!

 Kaden is kind, thoughtful, and still 100% boy (not to mention very handsome).  We were proud of all of the wonderful report cards that he brought home and all of the "green faces" he earned for his good behavior.  In fact...his behavior was so good this year that he earned a Six Flags trip from daddy!!
Kaden was so blessed to have Mrs. Williams as his teacher this year.  She handled 23 5 and 6 year olds like a champ this year.  I loved how patient and kind she was with all of the kiddos.  Kaden certainly enjoyed being in her class!
What a precious moment to celebrate with our sweet son!

Papa even made it down to celebrate the big day!
Of course this special day called for some special cupcakes...
 Kaden and I had fun making these little graduation hats for the top of the cupcakes!

He loved getting some congratulations cards in the mail

And for the kindergarten graduate...a shiny new red soccer ball perfect for a summer of backyard games while we get ready for next season!
(Seriously...could he get any more handsome than this?)

Words just can't describe how much we love you!  You are such an amazing little boy.  We are so often blown away by the size of your heart...like just the other night when we went to Wal-mart and you wanted to spend some of your birthday and graduation money on some toys for little boys and girls in Africa...or finding things like these sweet drawings in your kindergarten journal from the beginning of the year
You have and continue to teach us so much about life and love and our precious Lord.  We are so grateful to be your parents!!  May you continue to grow in wisdom and in stature sweet boy!  We are so proud of you!!
