The title of this post is what Sam is calling himself. He graduated from pre-K today. The ceremony was so sweet. Sam even had a part in it! They actually let him do the opening prayer. His teachers were telling me that they love it when it is his turn to pray because it is unlike any prayer they’ve ever heard a child pray. For example, his nighttime prayer is usually along the lines of, “Dear God, um, thank you for today and thank you for my mommy and my daddy and my baby sister and may she continue to grow as she should. In Jesus name, Amen.” He was very hard to understand at graduation but I think that might have actually been the prayer he said this morning. Regardless, we are very proud of him.

Each child’s name was on a crayon. Unfortunately, Sam’s name was on the back side.

Apparently, graduating is exhausting for a 4 year old, 3 week old, and a grandpa…
