8th grade fun...

 Last weekend I had the privilege of going to the Creation Museum with the 7th and 8th graders from Dylan's class.  We also visited a Castle.  
 These are a great group of kids!

 The Creation Museum was beautiful, the outside gardens were AMAZING!

 My boy has passed me up in height and he loves to rub it in!
 I don't know about you, but I am very glad the dinosaurs are extinct!  Wowsers, can you imagine!
Thursday night we had Dylan's 8th grade graduation!  Oh my goodness, I know I gained a few more grey hairs this week, my kids are growing up way too fast!  Thankfully we are enjoying each of the ages and stages and I am thankful for happy, healthy, growing children.
 Dylan received the "virtue" award from his teacher!  I was brought to tears as they read "Goodness of character, knowing that others are being influenced by my life. 2 Peter 1:5"  We decided to home school our kids to form their character, it was great to hear we were on the right track with that!
 This has been such a great year for Dylan.  His teachers were amazing and it was a blessing that he was able to have this year at our small christian school as a transition from home school before he heads to public school next year.  It was a great environment for him to learn and grow in.  He is excited and ready for high school, just wish I could wrap my head around the fact he is going to be a freshman!  It feels like yesterday I was heading off to high school,  however, I was reminded just how long ago that really was as I have my 20th high school reunion coming up this summer!!!  Really?
The 3 amigos!  Dylan, with his friends Jack and Sammy, the 3 of them really bonded being the only boys in their class of 9!

Dylan we are so proud of you and are excited to see what God has in store for your future!
