ScHooL DayS

first of all.
look at that snaggle tooth smile.
the most adorable thing ive ever seen.

i can't believe it.
this cute boy just graduated kindergarten.
trace carter whitt.
i mean that just can't be.
wasn't he just born?
ok so maybe not.
but didn't he just start k-5?
trace had such a great first year of school.
mrs. ramsey was such a god-send.
the best teacher ever, perfect for trace.
he learned so much.

made several new friends... this is his class! :)

he proudly accepted his diploma from mr. byrd.

i heard all about lots of different girls.
he says he doesn't have a girlfriend.
but mama's not convinced.

some of his work from throughout the year.
green man in camo with tank. i am thankful for the army.
blue boy with balls on his arms muscles. my new years resolution is to be strong. (obviously)

it still amazes me to see trace write words. sentences. stories.
and the boy can read. like he reads books to me.


yall i know he's not the only kid that can read and write.
but still. he's my kid and im one proud mama!!
he's come so far in 9 months i just can't believe it.

here's a sweet treat from mrs. ramsey.
see. told ya she's the best. :)


graduation day <3>
luc photobombed the pic.
i love it.

daddy and his biggest mini me.
2 of my 3 loves.

ummm excuse me where did my baby go?
he is the most handsome graduate i've ever seen.
in the history of ever.

and lastly... a few before and after shots that still leave me speechless...
the first... is his school pic from the fall.
yes its a pic of the pic.
the proofs got buried under papers on the table.
and it was too late to order them.
anyways. look at this chubby cheeked little boy.
with only 1 missing tooth.

now. i mean look at him. spring pictures.
again. didn't order in time.
remember, i did order the graduation pics.
thats all that matters. right?
so look.
he is so growny looking here.
and the missing teeth.
and the ones he lost that have already grown back.
i can't get over it!

first and last days of kindergarten.

watching your baby grow up before your eyes is hard to do.
but i could not be more proud of my angel!!
i'm excited for the summer (and so is he!)
first grade will be here before we know it.

Celebrating NEW LIFE with Baptism

 On Wednesday nite, December 7, 20011, Trace accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.
On Sunday, March 31, 2013, he chose to be baptized to make a public profession of his faith in Christ.
2 very important days in my boys life... sure does make this mama proud!
Uncle Josh got to baptize Caden and Laura Grace. When I asked Trace if he wanted Uncle Josh or Pastor Jerry to baptize him, he was quick to say PASTOR JERRY! :)

I also got to witness 2 precious young ladies get baptized. I am so super proud of them. It is such a priveledge to say at first they were our exchange students... now they are not only Sisters in Christ but really great friends of mine. God has blessed me by allowing me to mentor these beautiful ladies! 
Hannah... I love you more than words can say. I hope you always remember this special day in your life... at little ol Argo Christian Fellowship! Thankful for you! :)  

 Patricia... you make me so proud. Despite your fear of tripping or doing something embarrasing, you chose to have a public baptism. What a great memory and I love that I was a part of this day! ;)
Nothing can really top those pics... but here are a few from the egg hunt at Meme and G-Daddy's later that afternoon! Tons of crazy kids waiting to hunt sugar filled eggs... it was madness!

 I don't even know what to say about this! :D

Easter is always such a fun celebration... we have tons of family, and friends that think they we treat like family... more food than we could ever eat... great fellowship. laughter... love. joy. memories... and of course, the 9074 eggs!
