REALLY!?! This year can’t be over yet! A little over two weeks ago our little Rebekah became an official 1st grader! I think I have mentioned before that the homeschooling group we are a part of has “school” on Fridays. And so her “Friday School” class had a graduation ceremony.
This graduation symbolizes even more than Rebekah finishing kindergarten. WE ,as a family, finished Kindergarten and our first year of homeschooling! The beginning of this school year brought with it a lot of unknowns… but this first year of “home education” has been a great experience for Rebekah and the entire family! We survived, grew and I would even say thrived. We had bumps, moments of “well, we won’t do that again”, days that were overwhelming and even chaotic but those days were far outweighed by the triumphs, smiles, laughter, hugs,successes, experiments, singing and peace.It is amazing the things she has learned and how she has grown, more than just phonics and numbers… Rebekah is a little girl that has character and I daily had the privilege to see that character blossom. Another thing that was amazing to see is how Anna was learning right along with Bekah. We were and are really learning all together.
We had a great morning of celebrations. Both Grandpas and Grandmas were there and Aunt Becky too. They all came to cheer Rebekah on.
So we did it! SHE DID IT! GOD DID IT!
Congratulations to Rebekah Kate our Kindergarten Graduate!
Our little girl is maturing, learning, dreaming and succeeding. How fun it is to watch and be a part of!

And of course every graduate needs to toss their cap in celebration… (cue :" Schools Out For Summer” )
“Rebekah, you just graduated from Kindergarten, what are you going to do next?”
“I’m going to DISNEYLAND!” (which we did! ;))
