Kindergarten Bound

It's hard for me to believe, but in a couple of weeks, Cort and Reid will have their preschool graduation.  Some of you have seen them grow up on this blog, as I started writing when they were a mere four months old.
Over Spring Break, I took them to their future elementary school and did their assessment tests.  We registered for riding the bus.  I filled out all their paperwork. 

In a minute, I will blink again, and they will be climbing up the bus steps, backpacks thumping along the way.  August will be here in no time.   My sweet baby boys.  How did they ever get so big?

My daughter is attending Prom this weekend. It's still so unreal that she is old enough for PROM!!!

Laura Lee said...

Lol! @ Sunnybrook Farm's comment! That's for sure!
I don't have children but have 2 dogs and can hardly believe one is 6 and the other's 7. Time sure flies.

They are so handsome! I know how you feel. Yesterday my daughter was in grade school - today she's 36 and has two little girls. And me, well I'm just getting older.

Absolutely priceless photo!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

That is a beautiful picture of your boys! They are so handsome. My nieces and nephews grew up so fast (it seemed). Now I have great-nieces and nephews.

Just think how well you've documented their lives on this blog--these pictures and stories will be precious!

Ginny said...

Well I'm really all teary now, and need a tissue. Really! Time is a thief and steals all our precious moments, the laughs, smells, and words. I know they are boys, but I just have to say it. They are beautiful. In the white caps and gowns they look like angels. You can't get more precious than his.

What a handsome pair! Parenthood can be so rewarding, but it goes by much too fast.

Mere said...

Aww, this makes me all misty eyed!

Betsy Adams said...

Hard to believe how fast time flies, isn't it???? My boys are 50, 44 and 42 now.... GADS!!!!!

Love that photo of the twins. ADORABLE.

Pray for me tomorrow as I have my surgery.
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh lovely children!

Adorable!

Lin said...

Do. NOT. Blink. Seriously. Mine is graduating from college next week. Seems like yesterday I was doing what you are doing.

Such sweet things! And so handsome!

Harry Flashman said...

That's how it happens. One minute they are little, the next they are grown up and going off to school, never to return. I wonder why nobody settles down near their family anymore. People used to do that.

Michelle said...

They are handsome, little guys. It really does all go so fast.

Linda said...

Lovely portrait! Congrats to them on graduating.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Annette said...

My son will be going to kindergarten next year too. (We can cry on their first day together!) Love this picture :)

Lynn said...

what a gorgeous photo, they are adorable and yes time does have a way of moving a long at a galloping pace, more noticeable some times than others...

A Quiet Corner said...

Holy moose-poops, Baby Girl! Cort (?) is the spitting image of Pierce ! I cannot believe they will be heading to school either!!!!...:)JP

Roan said...

They looks so cute in their caps and gowns. You are right, don't blink. My oldest granddaughter is 14 and will start high school in the fall. Befroe we know it she will be off to college. I'm not sure where the time went.

Hayley said...

Lisa, your boys are so beautiful. I love that picture. Has it really been five years already?

Ian and Eva will be going to kindergarten next year as well and I still can't wrap my mind around it! I'll no longer have babies, just big kids... Makes me a bit sad but then I think about babies and I go NOPE NOPE NOPE!

mail4rosey said...

Time mega flies, that's for sure. And they look so so cute!!!

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Awww- try not to blink Mom- it all happens so FAST!! Your boys are so adorable!

Angela said...

I absolutely love that picture of the twins! That is so sweet! I will have to say that before I had kids time stood still. Now that I have them it is flying by at warp speed...

Lexie Loo, Lily, Liam, and Dylan Too! said...

The picture is beautiful! They are so handsome!
They do grow up way too quickly, though!

Slamdunk said...

Hey, stop blinking before our kids transition from elementary school to college! I am sure you all will have great fun over the summer--lots of time until Aug and school starts.

Busy Bee Suz said...

It is amazing how fast it goes….having the blog to chronicle it all is a great thing.
I can only imagine how excited they are to join big brother at the big school!!!

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Lisa,

You have done an amazing work with all your beautiful 3 children.
Yes! Time really flies...

HAVE A BLESSED TIME WITH THOSE YOU LOVE, MY DEAR FRIEND!
GOD MAY BLESS YOU ALL.
Greetings from Starry.

Michaele said...

I love this photo Lisa! Now I can tell them apart better also. I used to think they were identical. They really are growing fast! I hope you enjoy your time while they are in school.
