The newest Teeples’ graduate

I proudly present the newest Teeples graduate:


Eli graduated from preschool with flying colors!! I was such a proud mom, I couldn’t stop smiling during his whole program, except the times I was tearing up!

Why is something so small as a preschool graduation an emotional event for me? Who knows. Maybe because I am crazy.

I don’t even want to imagine what I am going to be like when he graduates from high school. Or when he moves out! Yeah, don’t even want to go there. I want him to stay my sweet little boy forever.

At the same time I am so proud of him and constantly amazed at his eagerness to learn. He is one smart kid, and I am glad that learning is important to him. I hope he always has that excitiment for learning.

When Eli’s teacher highlighted Eli she mentioned that one day Eli showed up to class and said, “What great things are we going to learn today?” Seriously?? What 5 year old says that? Only my Eli. She also said that he is such a learner and thinker. Always asking questions and soaking up everything she says. She was spot on. That is my little Eli, and always has been. I hope that one day those traits are ones that will help him to be successful as he grows up.

DSCN1358Eli has loved preschool and loved his teacher, Miss Mandy. She is so sweet and always does such fun things for preschool. We are so glad that we live so close to her so that we can still see her once in awhile.

Thanks, Miss Mandy for such a great year!

I still remember when Eli was born...and then Bo was born a few months after him. They'll both be starting Kindergarten this year...and that freaks me out how time has passed so quickly. Eli is such a good boy...and seems so grown up for his age. Congrats on the graduation, Eli! :o)
