Where did the time go???

Where did the years go? My oldest child will complete his last day of kindergarten tomorrow and will offically be on his way to the first grade. In fact, when I picked him up at school yesterday he said - "you can now call me an 'almost first grader'" - oh my, my heart got heavy.

As if my emotions where not running wild enough, his teacher gave our family this gift. She is a fabulous lady and words can not describe how fortunate we were to have her as my sons teacher. She taught him so much. She gave us a kindergarten scrap book. She spent her time creating a memory book filled with pictures of my son and his class, art projects he did, handprints, and memories that I could have never captured without her help. I will cherish this gift forever. I wanted to share the most special pages below and to show off what a special lady his kindergarten teacher truly is.

The cover.

I love handprints.

This blue string was his length on the first day of school. He then was remeasured and had grown 2 inches.

Fall pictures.

This brought tears to my eyes!

Christmas time.

Spring projects.

Signatures of his classmates.

and a special message from Mrs. Shank.

ahhh....where did the time go?

I know exactly how you feel. I have been feeling the same way lately. He did an awesome job on the family portrait. Looks like you have an artist on your hands.

Oh my goodness! That book is amazing! What a wonderful teacher to make one for every one in the class. I love the string with how tall he was!
