For the past six years we have attended the Thanksgiving lunch program at the kids' school and we've had at least one of our kiddos up on that stage. Singing, dancing, big smiles and of course the traditional Native American name. (For the record, Landry was Swimming Elephant - they apparently got to pick their animal and action. Millie was Sprinting Fox #runningcoacheskid).
This year was the last time we'll have a cutie kid singing about being an acorn and it made me so sad.
I can't believe how big she is - time is just speeding by and I basically just want to sit on her to keep from growing up. That doesn't seem to be working.
This school has meant so much to us and I'm so thankful for all the silly songs, crazy activities and precious memories they have given our kiddos.
I'm also thankful for all that they have given to us, the parents. The ones that drop them off every day knowing that they are loved, cared for, educated and prayed over.
Thank you just isn't enough.
