One Last Sing & Tea

Thursday, May 10th, 2012
(Aunt Cindy, Mimi, Oma, Aunt Kim, cousin Emma)
Owen's Pre-K5 Spring Sing and Mothers Day Tea
Just another performance to him...but an emotional LAST pre-school performance for moi
little did this cutie patootie realize that his Momma was mourning the loss of a most precious time...truly the end of an era
there's just nothing like the energy and joy that comes from children this age
Like when Owen was asked to wave his hand when his name was called out and instead he jumped up and proudly held his head high :-))
and when he came flying out from the stage to wave to his family in the audience
Mother's Day Tea
this is the one time during the entire year that we are invited into the classroom; we are then served gifts and yummy treats
Big O could not wait for this part...
retrieving red punch
and delighting in sprinkled sugar cookies

Owen ~ You are my *SONshine!

(Journal: The following Tuesday when I went to drop Owen off for the very last time, I unexpectedly got hit with a ginormous wave of emotion. I didn't just tear up, I sobbed like a baby. To drop off for the very last time...EVER...was just too much for my heart to take. I did the math, and this was around my 800th time to drop off one of my babies at pre-school. And I will never do it again? How could that be possible?? I'm not ready for my baby to be in someone else's care for as many hours as he is in mine...and that is exactly what happens when they start big school. Oh, where oh where does the time go? Wasn't it just yesterday that we started this school year? Is it me, or was this the fastest year ever?! Oh Father  ~ please help me to make every moment count; to build a legacy that's lasting; to be the Mom you designed me to be. Only with your help Lord...fill me up...and then pour out of me your Agape Love.)
