Goodbye Sixth grade.....

I can't believe that it has been a whole week since I last posted a new blog.  I've been really busy with life lately though!  The dance studio I work for just had our dance recital on Saturday so last week was filled with extra practices and final practices, dress rehearsals and finally the big show!  It was great, and heartbreaking. There were memorial dances for a girl from the studio who's sister was killed in a car accident, another dance in honor of another girls mom who is fighting breast cancer.  There is so much tragedy in life, so many things that are just heart breaking.  The emotions from Saturday were crazy and everywhere.  The recital is over now, and their pain continues, hopefully next year we won't have a reason to do a memorial dance. 

On a happier note:

Through out the past few years I has watched in awe as my baby has grown into a small man.  He's not a grown up but he makes grown up decisions.  From kindergarten until now he has done things, small and large, that make me so proud.  He's been called a hero, and unknowingly was one, and he gives without thinking to anyone that is in need.  This year I have fed 2 children at the middle school. I send $40 at a time for his account, so therefore Cam can get extra pizza, corn dogs or fries.  His friend can't, because he has "free lunch", so Cameron buys it for him.  I get annoyed because Wes has been out of work for almost a year and we can't afford to feed another persons kid, but am I going to say "No, don't give him food"?  No I will fork up more money for Cam's account and thank God that my son is so giving, and that we can still pay for lunch. I also thank God that he is so caring and I pray that he continues to show kindness to others through out his life.

Today is his last day of sixth grade.  It feels like I just held him for the first time yesterday.  Seems like just yesterday that he came home asking what is a hero? Now here he is, going into the seventh grade turning twelve and looking so grown up.  I keep asking myself when is he going to start calling me "mom" instead of "mommy".  I know that's what he says in front of his friends "My mom" or "My Dad".    He makes me so proud because he is not selfish, he is giving.  So today I pray that God continues to keep my little boy safe from harm, keep him pure in his thoughts and keep his heart giving and kind!  And please please let 7th grade go as smoothly as 6th grade!

They do grow up so fast. I met my stepdaughter when she is eight and she is turning 20 this year. I also hope Grade 7 goes smoothly.

Thanks for popping by my blog.
