Huge hugs and congratulations to Austen! He graduated from Randolph Elementary School yesterday and is headed for Junior High School in the Fall. Austen had about 65 kids in his class. Most of them have shared their days since Kindergarten. They are a great & diverse group of kids. Austen has a super sweet group of close friends, and I know he counts all of his classmates as buddies. Here he is (center) with Lance (l) & Kyle (r). Special thanks to all of the teachers & staff who made Austen's years at RES so great!
The graduation ceremony was adorable. I had some tears, but they were all happy, amazed tears.
So happy that Austen is growing up & so amazed at how quickly these little people became strong, smart pre-teens. When did that happen? My favorite part was the slide show that the kids put together. The background songs were, "Finally" by Fergie &"Life is a Highway" by Rascal Flatts.
I know I wasn't the only Mom with a few tears... Congrats, Austen! You're a star!
