5th grade grad...Headed for middle school...:-(

This was my sweet Brennan's last year of elementary school!! I cannot believe how fast his years of elementary have gone by.

Here he is ...Wow!! All grown up!! Gulp!!Here's his sweet cousin Darci. (I wish they could have walked in together! And somehow I didn't get a pic of them together?? How did this happen? Oh..I know...Lily Hope was really needing a nap at the time! Lol!!!

I know this pic is dark, but I just had to show cracks me up! Bren was asked by the principal to open graduation with prayer. You could barely see his sweet little head over the podium. Proud moment for this Momma!

Here's Bren and one of his best buds in the world. We are so sad to let this little guy go to another school. He has been such a great friend to Brennan and these two are quite the pair on the basketball court. Keegan, you will be greatly missed, but this is not the end to your friendship! You know you're always welcome in our home! We wish you the best sweet buddy!!

These are some of the sweetest kiddos I know!

These boys are family! Bren has grown up with these little men! We've grown to love them and are so proud of them!!!

As Brennan enters middle school, we can only pray for him. That God will guard his heart against the evil of this world. That he will rise up and be a Godly role model and leader. That he would stand up for what's right...and fight against what is wrong. That God will guide him and direct him. That He would place a hedge of protections around him. And that he will make an impact for Christ in all that he says and does!

God has big plans for you, Buddy. Can't wait to see what they are!

More summer updates to come. It's been so crazy around here with BASEBALL, BASEBALL, and MORE BASEBALL!!

Be the Hope 4 Orphans!

Seeing this just brought me to tears. I love these grandchildren so much. But they will do great in middle school. I'm so glad you and Deana are there to watch them from a DISTANCE!!!! I know because I've been in the same school as my kids. I loved being able to watch them without them knowing it!!! Brennan and Darci are wonderful Christian role models. And remember, God is always there.
