Photostory Friday: My Big Man

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

My little man a kindergartener no more. Today was his end of year ceremony. I cannot believe how fast this year went. I am so proud of his accomplishments in these short months in reading and math and his overall maturity level. When the kids first came into the cafeteria-turned-assembly room I had to crouch into the walkway to catch a shot of my first born (he is always at the front of the class sitting on the floor as he is a full head smaller than all of the other kids in the class) as he spots me and allows me to great a shot of him through the media cart with the CD player and projector on it. Isn't he so cute (of course I have to say that) and tell me he doesn't look old enough to be a 1st grader. And par for the course, I cried through most of the ceremony and especially the slide show. Why did they have to play country music??

And an extra shot of him on the playground at our K picnic.

After the show was over we were allowed to take him for early dismissal. We went home and Hubby went to work. Z and I hung out in my office at home while I did some work and he played on the computer. As we went to get his sisters, he told me that he really loved spending the day with me. What a sweetie. I hope he always loves his mama and doesn't turn into a difficult teen!

Wow, he is so beautiful HG. On a side note, wow, the lighting is PERFECT (was a flash used)?

Yeah, that is a HUUUGE milestone,
I'd be a mess too. *Gulp*. WHERE DOES that time go?

Thank you so much for playing again this week.

My big girl completed her first year of preschool today! It is amazing how fast the time goes.

When my Kindergartener marched out of school for the last time this year I was shocked when I got all choked up. But man, I swear I just sent her for her first day! It went so fast!

He is gorgeous. MG is right, that lighting is amazing!

Great PSF!

Beautiful shots! And WOW does he ever have amazing eyes, or what??? :-)

Thanks for your generous comment on my PSF post. As a father of three, I hear your pride and I recognise the depth of your emotion.

Our pride in our children is a tangible thing.

What a handsome young boy! His eyes are stunning.

I would definitely be a mess as well. My oldest is starting JK in September and as much as Im looking forward to the time off from him and his crazy ways, I am so sad that he's growing up.

I think those days of spending time with one's oldest child are precious and few and meant to be treasured; for him, too, obviously.

Aww! What a milestone. I need a box of tissues for events like that. Sniff!

What a great shot through that cart! It's really amazing how quickly the time passes - my oldest just graduated!

Don Mills Diva June 13, 2008 at 11:58 AM  

Wow - he is a gorgeous child - you're going to have to beat the girls away before long...

I absolutely LOVE the shot through the cart. That's awesome.

I know, it's unbelievable how fast they grow. Sigh. On to new adventures every day. :D

The photo through the wires of the cart turned out great! Although, I think teens are just difficult period. They do have some wonderful moments you can share with them as they grow up but wow, somedays you have to ask yourself, was I really like that too? LOL

Glad he had a good graduation. :)

What a great shot of him! He's a cutie! Congrats to your big 1st grader now!

Oh what lovely shots!
I love the lighting.
He is so handsome....makes me realize that my boy is growing so fast. I just wish they'd slow down a little.
sniff, sniff. June 13, 2008 at 5:33 PM  

That pulls on your heart strings a bit. Oh, they aren't allowed to grow ages us!

Not Just Any Jen June 13, 2008 at 10:06 PM  

Oh, I do not even want to think of the teenage years. I would have cried too!

Robyn June 13, 2008 at 11:31 PM  

That is a great shot through the cart. He is a cutie and not really a first grader until school starts again:)

What a beautiful gaggle you have...LOVE the header! I'm sure these first 5 years with your boy have flown by:) Congrats on the milestone!

Both of those pictures are PERFECT. I loved the one through the media cart. The second one with those sparkly darling eyes is too much!!!
