I can hardly believe Caleb is out of Kindergarten where did this year go? I know if each year goes this fast we will be watching him walk out of high school in no time, so I will cherish these days and I remember this thought when Caleb and Ella are driving me nuts this summer!
In his class singing a song for the moms
Last Day worship time
That sweet little boy that timidly walked into a new school last August walked out today a 1st Grader saying good-bye to all his friends, it has been a GREAT year!

This post is a special thanks to Jimmy who put up the rope swing
Please take note of the "Super Caleb" attire...jeans-very rugged for whatever situation you find yourself in, cape-a must for a superhero, rubber boots-not a traditional part of the superheros attire but proven handy in many a sticky situation(and they are quick and easy to put on)
