About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

Sixth Grade Promotion {Tristen Bradley Logo} - and Friends

It is so hard to fathom.  My child, my firstborn son, has completed seven years of school.  We celebrated his sixth grade promotion in style! 
I stayed up late the night before his promotion ceremony to hand-string $13.00 in ones and individually wrapped, color coordinated candies onto a lei for him to proudly wear as he stands with his peers in front of his and their family and friends to receive his certificate of completion.  (I meant to give him $20.00 but there wasn't room on the lei - don't worry, he still received a total of $20.00)
We arrived early enough for me to capture a few shots of my young man before the observance began.
 We ran into a couple of Tristen's buddies while we waited and took the opportunity to secure those memories.  Discovery stops at sixth grade and Tristen will most likely not be attending the school with his elementary friends next year (and the years to come).  He has made some strong connections in the seven years he attended Discovery, though and I'm sure they will follow him in the coming years, no matter where the other students end up going.
