Through the years....

Right before the graduation dance at school, the 7thg and 8th graders (and 8th grade parents) assemble in the gym and watch a video.  This video contains pictures of all the 8th graders through the years from preschool to 8th grade.

Each 8th grader is asked to submit 1-3 pictures from each year.  I wanted to share the pictures we submitted.

Putting these pictures together was like a little walk down memory lane.  And, of course, it made me sad.  But at the same time, he's growing up, which is exactly what he's supposed to do.

I can look at all these pictures and see a boy that's got varied interests and talents. He's smart, funny, loving and tenderhearted. He's growing and changing and I can see a glimpse of the man he is going to be.  And that helps me smile through these tears.
